“A small hidden treasure”

Linnaeus Teaching Gardens
Ranked #21 of 121 things to do in Tulsa
Attraction details
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The Linneaus Teaching Gardens may be overlooked if you are in Woodward Park. However, it is an incredibly well designed beautiful urban garden that showcases a tremendous variety of plants that will grow in Oklahoma weather. The garden is small, about two acres, and can either be appreciated with a quick walk-through or enjoyed in depth. Plants are labels and are changed as new varieties are planted. There is an Heirloom Vegetable garden that allows visitors, especially children, to see what food looks like when it is grown. There is a large koi pond, lovely basalt fountain, and a greenhouse with succulents and exotics. The garden is staffed by friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. It is quickly becoming a primary tourist attraction for gardeners and general visitors alike.

What a wonderful gift Linnaeus Teaching Garden is to our city! The groomed gardens are simply breathtaking. The paths are well groomed and easy to navigate. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun and interesting. The gardens are very peaceful and serene. Put this on your bucket list - it is a must see.

Anytime of year, the gardens have plant life blooming but for me the best time is in the spring! Great place for pictures. Lots of engaged couples use its flowering background for their engagement pictures.

The gardens are very nice and the staff is extremely friendly. They allowed my 4 year old to feed the fish in the pond, which she loved. It was a nice place to visit and I would recommend it to anyone in the area.
