I love to visit the botanical garden. It's a perfect place to take photographs. I have used it a few times now for pictures when I'm in the area and they always turn out so nice. Beautiful background for pics.

We were married here in October 2013 and it was amazing. We go back every year on our anniversary to the spot where we said our vows. Such a beautiful location!

We spent a day in Toledo on our way home to Chicago and so glad we gave this place a try. We ended up sending at least an hour more then what we were planning. And it’s free (but we still donated anyway)! Plenty of free parking as well. If you haven’t been there before, I would recommend going to... More

Great place to visit in the spring and summer months. Just stroll through all the gardens or stop at a bench and sit and read a book. So relaxing. Perfect setting for photo shots. Amazing space the middle of a community.
