Night lights at the Gardens is a magical experience! The Crystal Palace style domes are beautifully illuminated with the fire fly experience especially enchanting.

The exotic plants, trees and flowers, make for a nature filled visit to this recently renovated building. Very well kept grounds. Located near Our Lady of Victory Basilica: Church.

As beautiful as the Erie County Botanical Gardens is, it could improve significantly if it had the dollars and commitment from both Lackawanna and Erie County. Unfortunately, like its City of Buffalo counterpart, greed and corruption from politicians and bureaucrats will prevent it from happening.

Even those who are not interested in plants (such as myself), etc. will spending an hour here. There are lots of rooms with interesting cactus, etc. It's pretty awsome and a great place if the weather is giving you cabin fever. I would recommend also visiting the close-by Basillica Church.
