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.
