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.

This is for all flower and garden lovers! The $11 admission is a very fair price and worth every dollar. We parked in a safe parking garage and the gardens were very close, so it was easy to walk to them. Street parking is also available, but we couldn't find a spot. There were numerous themed gardens, that you may... More

I went with 8 kids, newborn to 15. there is something for everyone. First stop is the two parts of the glass house. In addition to the beautiful flora, there are lots of exciting animals. The highlight of course are the beautiful butterflies in the Costa Rica section. After that it was outdoors to experience the gardens them selves. Currently,... More

There is so much to see at these gardens. Of course, everything is identified. There is a play area for children and indoors is a lovely area of plants. If you get there at the right time in the afternoon (around 2 p.m.) this is where they release the lovely butterflies!

The admission and parking are kind of pricy, and the place is small, not much plants, I am disappointed. If you have children with you. It is a great place to take them, if you want to appreciate the plants, flowers and garden, this is not for you.

This is a very nice botanical garden. The Glass House was well done. The variety of pants and animals was good. Watching two male chameleons interacting (wanna fight) was very interesting. And the leaf cutter aunt colony was very unique. The outdoor garden, while not large utilized a natural ravine in a very different way. Lots of play areas and... More

We visited with friends and had middle school age children in tow. Everyone had a great time. This place is big enough to keep everyone entertained and interested for a few hours but not so huge as to leave everyone exhausted from walking. The indoor gardens and in particular the butterfly garden are really quite nice. The butterfly garden has... More

Decided to visit for the first time because of the treehouse exhibit. Was pleasantly surprised by how large the facility is--the treehouses were interesting, but my 5 year old was much more interested in the children's garden activities. On a Thursday afternoon there were craft activities (making a fairy wand), planting a seed, and an opportunity to operate an old... More

We were n Cleveland for something else and decided to go to the Gardens. While it wasn't as large as others we have been to, it was still lovely. The flowers and gardens were lovely and they had tree houses that the children, as well as the adults loved! There seemed to be something for everyone but you don't need... More
