I absolutely love taking portraits here as well as nature photography. Every corner is different yet they all work well together. Always have this place in mind when I want to relax as well.

The Conservatory changes things up regularly so it is fun to visit a few times a year. One trip through was to enjoy butterflies. Another time was for a seasonal display. It was relaxing and not overly crowded on the day I went.

There was a good variety of ecosystems presented including a special German Bier Garden exhibit. It was pleasurable and easy to travel around within the conservatory. Compared to other botanical gardens in similar-sized cities, this still needs some additional development.

This is a beautiful place, with a variety of plants that are fun and interesting to see, it would be better if more of the plants were labeled. Many left us wondering what they were. There are areas for kids that are educational and fun,...More

I would call the Botanical. When the butterfly exhibit is there, all are in a tent. The butterflies do land on you. Anytime we have visited there has never been a line to enter the butterfly tent.
