I love visiting the Gardens. It's a great place to hang out and relax for a while, and you can get some of the most amazing pictures taken here. So many people use the Gardens as the backdrop for wedding and other special occasion pictures.

In the center of the campus is The Gardens. A place for a nice walk and place to enjoy the scenery. If you geocache there are a few caches around also.

I went to school at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville for four years and had the great opportunity to watch the Gardens evolve. The have lovely areas for weddings and several walking paths the meander through the woods. One path will cross over a large wooden bridge and end in an asian inspired pergola overlooking a small pond. The Gardens are a branch of the Missouri Botanical Gardens and acquire more features each year, including new sculptures, new plants, more walking paths, and more resting areas.

Really nice flowers, some groves and some kinetic wind sculptures. The pond is full of turtles that are apparently used to being fed and there's a beautiful stone amphitheater next to the pond. Most of the walkway is paved. Kids were entertained by most of what there was to see. Free admission.
