These gardens on the Smith campus are beautiful. If you enjoy botanic gardens take the time to walk through these.

Gorgeous plants, variety of eco-systems, well maintained. Fun with kids, just to wander and breathe, or to sit on a bench and admire the rain forest.

We searched high and low for the perfect (and affordable) wedding venue. Our search ended at the conference center and Capen Garden at Smith College. The garden was PERFECT with hidden entry for the bride and gorgeous aisle under flower-covered trellises. All of our guests commented on our perfect timing with every flower in full bloom. The reception at the conference center was casually elegant with cocktail hour on the deck overlooking the river with dinner upstairs. Dinner upstairs and dancing downstairs was unconventional but it worked out perfectly! Our caterer told us that the kitchen at Smith is his favorite to work out of so it seems everyone was thrilled with the evening!

A nice place for an artist to set up an easel. Smith does a nice job with art and botanical garden. Have been there on several occasions.

As a non-gardener, I was surprised how captivating I found these gardens. Expecting to spend a few minutes I was there for the best part of an hour.
