Lovely Garden

The gardens are well maintained! A tram is available to see more and have a narrated background. The Sassafras restaurant is a nice way to end your visit! Delicious sandwiches!

This was our first visit, being August, we weren't sure how the gardens would be. We we're not disappointed. Although it was a terribly hot day, we enjoyed our visit tremendously. One highlight was seeing the Corpse flower as it was ready to bloom. Although we didn't get to see the actual opening of the flower, we were able to... More

We first took the Botanical Garden transportation which gave us a good overview of the grounds and then proceeded on foot to areas we could explore in depth. The statuary enhanced our experience beautifully!

We travel to St Louis for our daughters doctor appointments and are always looking for something to do. This was our 7 trip to St. Louis and our first time visiting the Gardens. What a beautiful place. My 2 year old fell asleep so we didn't get to utilize the childrens garden. The plants were beautiful. We especially enjoyed the... More

We visited during the Japanese Festival. There were extra activities going on. We saw a Japanese drum concert that was fun to watch. The gardens were beautiful. Lots of pretty flowers to look at.

We toured the gardens for nearly three hours. Our road app told us to look for parking on the street and to walk. We turned in the front gate and found free parking just steps away from the front door. We purchased tickets and quickly accessed the gardens...which are lovely. There is a good map, great signage and lots of... More

I would not recommend it. I was not impressed at all. I will not deny that it was pretty but I was expecting more flowers and different blooms. If you love flowers like I do and I have been exposed to an array of flowers this Garden was not impressive. I would skip this attraction.

A number of nice tours. Many on a tram through the beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed the "biospheres" where plants, flowers and trees grew that were only indigenous to Mediterranean and African climates

It was great there! Very beautiful we actually almost deflated the little snow globe you stand in for a picture! Only thing is make sure you plan ahead for parking and lines!
