Felt like an Ok kind of visit. The Japanese garden courtyard is very calm and quiet, good place to spend a few quiet moments. Found the gift shop to be a little expensive but has some quiet nice souvenirs.

The gardens are beautiful, with lots of flowers (colors and fragrances), but I was particularly impressed by the glass sculptures of the flowers, done by Mr Gamrath. I spent 3 hours taking pictures and relaxing.

This has to be one of the best places to visit while in Pittsburgh. The gardens and variety of what is here is simply amazing. The glass exhibits certainly added to what there was to experience here.

The lighting made everything more dramatic, the glass is lovely mixed within the plants and flowers. Enjoyed the walking, and that it's hard to get lost if you keep going right.

Yes Uber or other taxi service would be best because sometimes parking is just not available. There are no parking garages in the vicinity of Phipps and as I said parking can sometimes be a nightmare around there. I don't... More
