We recently visited the Cleveland Botanical Garden. My daughter absolutely loved it. The glass house with all the butterflies was a real treat for her. It provided lots of picture opportunities for her. I'm not much of a flower guy, so my opinion on that may not count, but I did enjoy seeing the animals and insects throughout the exhibit.... More

Not only is this a spot full of beauty for all ages to enjoy, it's a perfect family friendly day out with children. Especially on a warm summer day there is a little fountain, kid-friendly crafts, as well as what feels like miles of paths guiding you into and through the incredible tree houses in the summer. It's perfect for... More

For the Green Tumb Fanatic. Out of the 17 gardens, a perfect visit to the gorgeous Butterflies Garden ( #5 The Paula and David Sweetland Topiary Garden) is a must. Kids will enjoy the visit be prepared to hear them laugh and play.

Unexpected gem of a place. Didnt think it was going to be child friendly but boy was i wrong! We took our 10 and 12 year old and they LOVED the treehouses. What a great idea! Beautiful gardens and really tranquil place ( I know children and tranquil dont normally go hand in hand!) Would suit all ages especially pre... More

My husband bought a family membership a year ago and I have been pleasantly surprised by much we use it. Every season brings something new and interesting to enjoy. The treehouses are really fun and entertaining for our child, as is the children's garden. Member Night was a great event and well-attended. We usually end up combining a trip to... More

This was actually our second trip. Our child liked it so much we had to return. There are numerous garden areas that absolutely celebrate nature and childhood. I highly recommend the daily butterfly release!

This past Saturday I was in Cleveland for a daylily show and was amazed at the botanical garden and other attractions in the area. The staff was terrific and looked happy to be working in such a lovely and incredible setting. I wish I had had more time to browse the facility. Parking is convenient.

My favorite part besides the outdoor gardens was seeing a real baobab tree in the greenhouse. Super cool! I am not a fan of butterflies so I quickly went through the butterfly greenhouse because there were some large beastly ones in there. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, a real gem at University Circle.

There are beautiful gardens to suit the tastes of everyone here. There are tree houses for the young and young at heart; the docents are well informed and friendly. A visit to the rain forest will leave everyone feeling content and enlightened.
