Our dog loves his walks along the trails of the WVBG! Don't expect it to be a pristine botanical garden with meticulously-tended beds and guides to direct you. Get a map and explore, there are so many different types of trails and gardens. We were here several years ago and it's so much nicer now, with a visitors center, too.... More

Some of the pictures on the website made it seem much more like a botanical garden than it is. Yes, there are some pretty spots but for the most part, it is swamp land with trails/boardwalk cut through it. If you park outside the gate (after 4) it is quite the hike getting back to your car. Again, a nice... More

This is a wonderful place to take an evening walk. There are multiple trails which can be taken and it is usually uncrowded.

Wanted to enjoy an afternoon stroll and give my dog some exercise. It was after 4:00 pm so the gates were closed. Parked at the Tyrone entrance. A bit of a hill to get back to the car. There is a lovely area where there are flowers and sculptures made from natural elements. The majority of the gardens include trails... More

Quiet, beautiful, amazing scenes. If you like to look at flowers, birds, trees and gardens, this is the place to see all. The supporters of these gardens have done a great job.

This is a very nice area. Lots of trails to choose from. If you add them to your facebook page, they have walks and events to teach you about the different plants, trees, and wildlife in the area.

We came in September 2015, the weather was fantastic and the morning breeze was refreshing! We came for a bird walk which was very informative and enjoyable. Later in the morning we attended an event that showcased local birds of prey that had been rescued. It. Was. Great. As an avid birder, I really enjoyed the live show and learning... More

My sister and I went to the Botanical Gardens in Morgantown. These gardens are in their infancy but the walk in the virgin forest was well worth the trip. The mature trees set the stage as you enter the gardens. The visitors center is almost complete and looks like it will be really nice. There is a 20 foot eagle... More
