Wonderful, manageable, informal gardens that have worked on since 1949. Lovely annuals, perennials, water plants etc. the "docent" was a very hospitable young man who appears sincerely dedicated. My wife asked about the poppies and he gave her a packet of seeds!

If you live in Strongsville what a treasure and something to brag about. The history of the place is fantastic. A place to support and enjoy. Don't ignore. Makes a great family adventure.

Garden view, a nurture center in the center of the city, must see to believe. Started by one man decades ago and still a running nature center with beautiful flowers and trees.

I had read about this site in The Cleveland Plain Dealer and was curious. It's one of those places that is invisible even though it's in front of your face. The entrance is very hard to find, but trust your GPS - it's there. The main attraction is realizing that it was one individual that built this place up starting... More

I hadn’t been to Gardenview in a few years and went the other day with my mother, husband, and fourteen year old son. I was saddened to hear that the primary caretaker, since 1949, had died at the beginning of this year. The other caretaker, who has been working there for 18 years, is still toiling over the property. It... More

The gardens may have been a lovely place to visit in the past but the owner died in early 2014 and they have sadly deteriorated. Any large garden is a lot of work to tend and it appears that this garden is woefully understaffed in order to maintain it in a condition that is commensurate with charging addition. The greenhouses... More

These gardens are worth a trip any time of year. Hidden behind a wall on the busy main street through town, you find quiet beauty along garden paths. Stop for a bit - get away from the stresses of your busy life, relax with nature in this botanical paradise, and then you can go back to the hustle and bustle... More

Gardenview is the unique inspiration of the Henry Ross and his pursuit of an island of beauty in a sea of monotony. Strongsville is hardly a quaint French (or American) village. Rather it is bland and similar to many other suburban communities that are laced with fast food franchises, big box stores, and shopping malls. It wasn't always this way,... More
