Enjoyed our stroll through these gardens, which were open early on a Saturday morning. Located in beautiful Woodward Park, this is a great place to tour and see local vegetation in a beautiful setting.

I've never been to the gardens (on weekends) when the docents aren't helpful and gushingly friendly. They are there to help you in your journey and to answer questions. The vegetable gardens are unique and a delight. The pond is filled by several small streams flowing into it with koi greeting you as you cross the bridge. There is always... More

This is arguably one of the most beautiful spots in Tulsa. The gardens are kept up meticulously (minus parts of the rose garden dealing with disease but this is such a small part, it's not a big deal). I found the beautiful flowers, greenery, architecture, and waterfalls breathtaking. Loved our peaceful stroll through the greenhouse, vegetable garden, walkways, and down... More

These gardens were fantastic. They are much larger than you think. There are many small gardens. A great koi pond full of bull frogs. It was fun to try and find them. Hopefully one of the 300 volunteers are there to tell you the story of this wonderful place. It is a very peaceful and lovely walk.

Small enough to keep track of little ones; big enough to be in awe of all they have. Please don't miss this must see Tulsa destination.

The gardens are beautiful and there are always volunteers to answer any questions you may have about particular plants.

This place was so beautiful and peaceful! I can't wait to come back in the spring. The only annoying thing was that there was construction going on, but they couldn't help that.

The Linnaeus Teaching Garden is a lovely garden maintained by volunteers who love plants, gardening and sharing their knowledge. The garden changes with the seasons and with new plant introductions, making every visit a new learning experience. It's a great place for gathering ideas for your own garden and a peaceful place to relax. It is adjacent to the Tulsa... More

This magical place reminds me of a secret garden. It has so much to see and wow over. The most beautifully landscaped koi pond surrounded by thousands of plants to explore and admire. Unfortunately it closes early on Saturday (4 pm) and closed on Sunday. It has such a variety of picture ops that we forget to just look and... More
