We enjoyed our slow-paced tour through the gardens. Stopped along the way and sat under a pavilion and just enjoyed talking with each other and watching the birds that were in the creek. Spotted raccoon prints along the boardwalk. It would be great if they...More

The first trip to Mead Gardens was with a class of children, it was exciting and full of life. The second trip however, was for a wedding. I don't know if it was the time of year or what. There were little to no blooms....More

One would not expect such a lovely place. Great place to picnic and also a beautiful wedding venue. There is also a bike path the runs through the property. Very serene!

Don't bother. Nothing to see but rotting board walks and trash in bushes. The only butterfly we saw on the butterfly garden was the butterfly chair. Very disappointed.

If you just want a quiet stroll lost in your thoughts, this would be the place to go. In terms of seeing things, there's not a lot to offer, especially compared to its more famous neighbour, the Harry P Leu Garden. However, admission is free...More

Mead Garden is different. Smaller and more intimate, it draws you in to discover hidden nooks and treasures. The little pond is charming and relaxing. The butterfly garden had quite a few fluttering about the day I visited. A large area with trees and some...More
