Olbrich Botanical one of a kind.

The reason of my visit to Olbrich was to visit someone that once lived nextdoor that works at Olbrich. She gave me a tour of all the buildings and the gardens. The entire property is kept up very well and the gardens are beautiful. Inside the pyramid shaped building are many kinds of trees, plants,large goldfish, and birds. You can't beat the price which is free except for the $1 charge to enter the conservatory. My first visit was in May of 2008, and then another visit in June of 2008. In June the free tram car started taking people around the property and yes it's battery operated so there is no emissions. I rate it 5 stars since it's such an interesting place. And yes I would recommend Olbrich to anyone. You'll remember your visit for a long time.
Beautiful. Huge gardens, part of the City of Madison park system of Starkweather Creek. Unbelievable level of caretaking, you rarely see a weed here. There are meadow gardens, rock gardens, formal gardens, herb gardens. The Thai Pavilion in Olbrich Gardens is a golden gift to the University and City. It stands within a perfect setting and is great to photograph. Olbrich also has a new rose garden and the hardscaping (fountains, stone, pergolas) is gorgeous. If it's rainy, visit the small but nice indoor conservatory. The kids enjoy the birds and there are some good guides that point out surprising plants (like vanilla orchid). In the summer, they usually do a butterfly house.
The gardens both inside and out are gorgeous. I highly recommend checking it out if you have a couple hours to spend. There are beautiful water walkways,and the flowers are wonderful and rare. A must see to any visiting the area. FREE too!!!!
