Beautiful grounds and gardens. Go in summer for most beauty, but mornings because of heat. Some air-conditioned areas, but mostly outside. They do have transportation around the grounds, but you will want to do a considerable amount of walking to see everything up close.

Every day is special at the Garden with different plants blooming at different times but it is wise to check their calendar of unique events and celebrations. They are unique and delightful experiences.

The botanical garden is rightfully regarded as one of the best in the country. It has a wide array of attractions, and the Chinese garden is the best I've visited in the US. This place is highly recommended.

Well-maintained, huge but lots to see in short walks, a trolley available, guides available, beautiful setting, peaceful, ample places to sit an enjoy, but very family friendly for strollers and young children, too.

This is a very nice garden. Definitely worth paying for goldfish food. The coy are very large and fun to feed. Very cheap as well.

Spent a couple of hours at the gardens, not nearly long enough.. beautiful, so many flowers, all identified.. grounds are immaculate.. didn’t have nearly enough time, definitely planning a full day for my next trip.. I would think a spring visit would be spectacular..

These gardens are incredible. If you have the opportunity you should spend a few minutes to a couple of hours here.

What a magical place. It was so much bigger than I thought and the variety of plant life, the displays, the Japanese Garden, Chihuly glassworks all make for a great place to relax, wander, picnic or read.
