This is a popular spot for prom photos. You can pose by flowers, the lake, by columns, under a pergola, or in a gazebo. All are lovely. Be sure you read about restrictions before coming. I think pets and food are not allowed.

We stopped by on our way to the General store in Minnetonka. While not a true botanical garden, it is a well maintained and beautiful place with a lake view an all that remains of the Noerenberg estate. Worth a visit.

June at the Gardens was magical for small, intimate weddings. Ceremony for our daughter in the gazebo with waves of the lake splashing below, was memorable. And what a place for wedding photography. You have to reserve the gazebo. Check it out!

A lovely, albeit small formal garden on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. There is a gazebo overlooking the lake which has a great view and which serves my wife and I as a free mini-cabin on the lake, readily accessible from the western suburbs.

Spring, summer and fall, this garden is gorgeous. It's constantly changing with new color, textures and scents as the plants grow, bloom and die back. The garden is designed beautifully with unique plants and plant combinations. A special place for a intimate visit with nature.
