“Fun for the whole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

This is a beautiful place for the entire family to spend the day! I love the butterflies, sculptures, and special exhibits that are always featured. The flowers and plants are always spectacular and it's a special place to take visitors who are from out of town.

“Amazing Sculpture Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Fred Meijer Gardens is one of the gifts of the Meijer family. This place is just amazing. You get butterflies in March, awesome sculptures in the outdoor gardens, concerts during the summer, and an international display of holiday trees in December. One of the reasons I love living in West Michigan.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

I loved loved loved this place! Such amazing sculptures throughout the gardens and also such a wonderful place for kids! The kids love the Giant American Horse sculpture as well as all of the open space to run around. The boardwalk around the lake was nice and peaceful and there were plenty of turtles and frogs sunning themselves along the path. I spent several hours there and I'm pretty sure I saw everything there was to see.
Check it out if you can!

“A haven for your soul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

I am a long time member of the gardens. I go there nearly every time I am in Grand Rapids, even when it is raining or snowing because there is plenty to enjoy inside as well as outside. Sometimes I take a lunch and sit on one of the benches outside and enjoy the waterfall. Sometimes I eat in the cafeteria with great food. Sometimes I take the tram to see all the sculptures. Other times I just spend a lot of time walking. I go alone and with others. I always feel lifted after being there.
