Wow! What an incredible place! So many things to do and see. The outdoor gardens are magnificent even in the winter months. The indoors are quite amazing too. We love the glass house with all of the butterflies! The parking is easy but a bit pricey. The workers were very nice and sweet with the kids. Located close to other cool Cleveland attractions.
So beautiful. I LOVE it here. It is so peaceful and calming. It's a great place to go by yourself, journal , pray , think , clear your mind and breath. The fresh herb garden is so wonderful. Smelling all those flowers and herbs is just amazing. I would definitely book an event here , the area is just lovely. Beautiful views everywhere. You will not be disappointed and will enjoy the time you spend here. One of my favorite places to visit.
Even in the winter, the Botanical Garden is a fun destination! I went to the Christmas time event with gingerbread houses and Christmas trees decorated by different local groups. I can't wait to come back during the spring to see the different blooms in the outside gardens.
This is a great place to visit once or twice a year. They have sent great events like orchid mania and their Christmas displays. Not much else changes there buts it's still a neat place to visit.
Not at all what it used to be. We drove a hour to see gingerbread houses and decorated trees. We stayed 34 min and paid $64 to get in and $10 to park. We went a couple years ago and the place was packed with gingerbread houses, professional and homemade. They also had beautifully decorated trees. This year some of the trees were decorated and there was a short hallway of gingerbread houses. A lot of which were kits. I made and entered a house a few years ago and kits were not allowed. There is a small train outside my kids are to big for and a very tiny train display on the second floor that was overheated and not working. Also my teenagers are to big for the craft on the second floor. We will not come back for Christmas again. If I was coming for the gardens I would have come in the spring or summer. I came for Christmas trees and gingerbread houses. I didn't get either.
