The site is enormous, so walking it would have been a challenge. We took the tram through the outdoor sculpture area. Our guide was very informative. The indoor greenhouse was cool. It housed a corpse plant (did not open for us).

My sons and I visited on Mother’s Day to see the Bonzi tree exhibit and it was wonderful. The outside gardens are beautiful as well. We have also visited the butterfly exhibit a few times and that is amazing!

The "Gardens" invigorate the senses while taking one's breath away! The ever changing landscapes and exhibitions offer a place and space year-round respite. The volunteers and staff are especially friendly and accommodating. It is MUST SEE when spending time in Grand Rapids!
