The Meijer Gardens is simply splendid. A first class operation from beginning to end. The sculpture, the gardens from tropical to arid to the room holding the carnivorous plants (!) this place is worth a 200 mile detour.

I have spent many summer mornings here with my young children playing outside. And the Tuesday night concerts are fantastic for the adults!

Meijer Gardens is a beautiful nature walk with the added bonus of beautiful art work! Wear comfy shoes and enjoy the solitude and calmness. A lovely place to stroll the grounds and breathe!
