What a beautiful place! Unfortunately, we got there a bit late in the day, and didn't have a lot of time to enjoy the gardens. The group of volunteers were very friendly and patient with us as we quickly took in the beauty of these gardens. I will be back to this location to spend a little more time.

It's like another planet, but you don't need a spaceship to get there!. It is a genius miniature acreage that contains a well designed trek through plants, trees and gardens with Oklahoman gardening possibilities.

My daughter and I walked through the gardens, and it was a very enjoyable experience. She is in her mid-20s and thoroughly enjoys gardening. While I am not a gardener, I do appreciate the work that goes into a beautiful garden and the rewarding outcome. To listen to the water, walk through the different sections, and watch her discuss the... More

Woodward Park is a large public park that is home to five enormous terraces where as many as 5,000 roses were once grown. That was how a garden was envisioned in the Depression and building the terraces was a large public works project. Fast forward to the present where the Linnaeus Teaching Gardens showcases American gardening on a far different... More

They have special classes and events for children and young people thru-out the year. It is a beautiful small garden with a variety of types of garden plants, and gardening techniques and styles to see.

It's absolutely beautiful and a lot larger than I was expecting. It's completely volunteer run and they are so friendly and helpful. They took our kids on a tour of the vegetable garden and they got to fee the koi. The gardens are gorgeous. The green houses are a lot of fun as well. The only reason I didn't give... More

The Linnaeus Teaching Gardens are simply gorgeous. Part of the Tulsa Garden Center and Woodward Park, they offer respite in a beautiful setting and opportunities to learn about gardens and plants. Really nice.

The grounds are absolutely beautiful. I was in town for a few days and made a quick stop here, it was worth it. We only had a short time, so was unable to cover the entire park. We only visited the Rose Garden and the Linneaus Teaching Garden. If you want to cover more you will need more time. My... More

This was my third time to tour the Linnaeus Gardens and each time I have learned more about plants from the carefully labeled identification tags. The gardens are beautifully cared for and maintained by volunteers.My children and grandchildren love to visit here as well.

Enjoyed our stroll through these gardens, which were open early on a Saturday morning. Located in beautiful Woodward Park, this is a great place to tour and see local vegetation in a beautiful setting.
