We hit the Gardens on a perfect warm spring day just as all the bulbs were in full bloom. What a display. Hundreds of thousands of tulips, daffodils, etc. - it was mind blowing. I highly recommend this attraction for anyone visiting Columbus. Well worth the time and cost.

My daughter and I recently had a "Girl's Day Out" and she (10 years old) wanted to go see the butterflies. We had a blast! The blooms and plants are so beautiful and add in the butterflies...we sat for a long time and just enjoyed! We also ate lunch at Franklin Park - very good for such a venue:-) We will be back again soon!

So many flowers! Wow! And the children’s garden... so cool even for adults to check out. Cool garden kaleidoscope with flowers, puppet theater for kids to get creative, waterfalls ... all kinds of magical surprises! This is like fairyland. Loved it! ❤️

If you love flowers and plants this is a must when visiting Columbus. It’s also a good idea to have botanical garden membership which will get you in free. It’s now the butterfly season in the tropical garden area where scores of butterflies surround you. It’s also tulip season to come and admire the beautiful tulips displayed there. And if you are a fan of Dale Chihuly there are some of his works there, too. A plus is free parking if you just view the flowers outside the conservatory without having to pay anything.

Came here with my kids during the Columbus free event. Lots to see but it was cold out, which is to be expected during that time of year. Was also crowded but again we chose to go on a day with free admission so we were not surprised at all by the crowds. I do think that next time we go it will be in the summer, since the normal prices seem a little high during the winter months. And I'm sure it's beautiful in the summer.
