For the past several years my family has given me a membership here as a birthday gift. Whenever I go, there is always something beautiful to see and experience-- from the butterflies in the spring to the wonderful concerts in the summer, to the Christmas trees in the winter. If you are a photographer, the opportunities are endless. We have... More

Lovely garden walk, in every season, bring the family, or friends, or a casual walk through the garden for yourself. Well placed art works, ponds and waterfalls, feed the Koi, interesting art installations, heavenly greenhouse. Check their website for special exhibitions, especially love the summer concerts, the spring Orchid show, the Bonzi Show.

Frederick Meijer Gardens is a well known local favorite for a fun time with family or friends. There is something for everyone, with permanent/temporary exhibits inside and outside. You can enjoy sculptures and ina lovely natural setting. The grounds are beautiful, year round. Frederick Meijer Gardens is also a great location to enjoy an outdoor concert or a special event....

My friends and I really enjoyed strolling through the Meijer Gardens although it was an extremely hot afternoon. The Japanese Gardens were lovely & soothing. Many of the sculptures were fascinating and beautiful. I will hopefully get back to this lovely site when the weather is a bit more cooperative.

There is something for everyone there. Any time of the year it is worth visiting. We usually spend 2 hours there but you could easily spend a day there.

We don't usually go to parks or gardens but I am so glad we decided to visit this park. It is unique and very beautiful. It took us three hours to cover the entire park.

We went august 2016. Absolutely a beautiful place. The staff were very helpful. Food was a bit pricey. Tram comes in handy for the elderly. A must see!!!

We have visited Meijer Gardens several times and would recommend to anyone, the Christmas tree exhibit and the railway garden. It is so well done and unique with historical and geographic information about each regional tree. A must see for the holidays!
