We stop here every time our family visits Michigan. Make sure to visit the bonsai area by the greenhouses, the kids are always amazed at the little trees. Typically on Thursdays in the summer they are pruning the bonsai trees and the volunteers are eager to answer any questions.

I was my first trip to Hidden Lakes Gardens. A large plot of land managed by Michigan State University. Several trails and a conservatory. It also has a "hot house" that houses many tropical plants. It was a great way to spend an afternoon enjoying and learning about nature.

We made a day trip out to see these gardens. These gardens are about a hour an a half from Detroit and about 30 minutes from Ann Arbor in the Irish Hills region of Michigan. There is a $3 per person fee to enter; they take credit cards. The grounds are beautiful, and many of the plants are well marked.... More

This scenic drive thru different types of gardens and trees is truly amazing for $3 a person! Many hiking trails and ponds with fish! Cute little gift shop! Staff is amazing with our toddler! Been many times and will continue to do so!

This is a fabulously beautiful 755 acre botanical garden and arboretum owned by Michigan State University. It is open year round, equally delightful in every season. There are six miles of paved roads, great for and equally used by cars, bikes and pedestrians. There are more than five miles of marked hiking trails. It's also a beautiful, tranquil place for...

Went for a 3 mile walk around the gardens and visited the greenhouses. Everywhere you look its just gorgeous... quiet and very relaxing environment. They also offer classes on plants, grafting, and have spring sales on plants and trees. There is also a gift shop, bathrooms and are pet friendly. Will be going back for sure!

Have been a member for over 20 years and it is close to my home so I have explored every corner of it, walked all the trails and, more often, off trail into the woods too. It is a great place for what it is - a place where man and nature have met and created a beautiful place to... More

Reasonable fee to see the wonderful things in and at "Hidden Lake Garden". Great things to look at all by car, foot, buildings, and lake.

I love this place! It had been a while since our last visit, so it was great to visit thts lovely garden again! Even though it was a chilly October day, we had our little picnic next to the lake. Nearby, was a scarecrow type bride and groom (so cute). There were also other scarecrows scattered throughout the park. We... More
