This is a must see! We have visited many botanical gardens over the years and this one is by far the best! The plants/ flowers are all labeled. It is very well maintained. A great place to visit.

We went during the glass garden exhibit and it was spectacular!!! Weather was perfect and the walk was easygoing. Seemed busy but so spread out you didn't bottleneck anywhere. Definitely want to go back for another exhibit!

Love it, but there are a few things you may want to consider. I've been 4 times over the last 20 years. I always enjoy it, but wish the price of admission were lower. $12 a person for a couple of hours bites a bit....More

I am fairly sure that bus service is available however, not positive how close the drop off point is. If staying downtown I would check with the hotel. There is ample free parking at the Gardens during the week.
