WV Botanic Garden

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

They have various events year round that are low or no cost. Beautiful gardens, interesting Red Tailed Hawk structured art piece by a local artist that blends in beautifully with the landscape, and summer camps for kids- This is a great family destination near Morgantown and Cheat Lake.

I stopped by the Botanic Garden for a walk with my 10 month old. During my visit there was a lot of construction going on due to the addition of what appears to be a new visitor center. Because of the construction the lower parking lot was closed, leaving us to park in the upper lot. There is a short... More

I visited here last weekend to go on a short hike. There are a fair amount of trails that are well maintained and it appears that they are making more improvements (like building a visitors center). It is so peaceful here and I can't wait until it gets even warmer so I can come here more often. All in all,... More

This is a wonderful place to wander and explore. It's private when you get down into the gardens which makes the experience there very peaceful and relaxing.
