Cleveland Botanical Garden
This is the nation's oldest civic garden, dating back to 1930. Its 7.5 acres are divided into herb, wildflower, rose, perennial and Japanese gardens. More than 3000 species of trees and shrubs fill the garden. This non-profit community resource center offers information on landscaping and horticulture. The garden library has a section for youngsters, and visitors can choose from several programs such as preschoolers' story times, crafts and gardening classes.
Beautiful flowers. nice atmosphere. Construction around the site was the only negative. The butterfly collection was even better then the zoo. Took about 2-3 ours to see most everything but very relaxing and easy.
I was expecting not to be very impressed with the gardens, but I was very surprised. I have little to no interest in botony, and gained such an appreciation for plant life after my visit. I spent well over an hour touring, and it never got boring.
The gardens are extremely diverse and vast- more so than I ever imagined. The new glasshouse is also an excellent asset that recreates indoors the tropical environment of Costa Rica in one part, and the dry desert environment of Madagascar in the other.
A visit to the gardens will be a pleasure for everyone. You will be surprised at all the wonderful places for children to learn, play, and explore. It is also an excellent place for a date, and an excellent place to take people from out of town. There are many great photo opportunities.
