“An attraction everyone should see”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Wow, the Botanical Gardens never disappoint! Even in October! I have never in my life seen hanging baskets of mums as big as we did there this month! Although there are a few areas they are getting ready for winter, it was impressive how many flowers are still in bloom or are new for fall. Really believe everyone should go here! Just lovely. Even our youngest (10) loved the kids play area!

“We spent a lovely 3 hours there.”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

The weather was wonderful so that helped immensely. The tulip garden was in full bloom--that was worth the trip right there. Lots of people there and parking was limited but it didn't feel crowded once we were inside.

This is a great place for a walk, beautiful grounds and plants. This is not only for adults, they have a children's play area also.
Ate at the restaurant a main building, good food.

“Went during taste of Mo and it was great”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Crowded and hard to part. Walked a deal to get here but worth every step. Food was great. Art fair on street next to this was not worth money or time. Should have stayed here
