  • We stopped by here on a recent trip to Adventureland, and we were pleasantly surprised! While not as big as some other botanical gardens, Reiman is just a beautiful, well-maintained place to visit. The kids especially loved the butterfly exhibit, and I think every one of them had butterflies land on them. The outdoor exhibits are also very nice, and even though the gardens is very close to the road, you'd never know it walking through it. TIP: When walking along Lake Helen, be careful near the cattails because there are birds nests in there and the birds will likely fly over your head. Or in my case, a bird swooped right by my head, likely warning me to get further away from its nest.
  • 17 acres of amazing gardens. There's even a bunch of Lego sculptures scattered around that are awesome. Make sure to check out the butterfly enclosure!
  • Great variety of plants in a rather small area. Well maintained and a fun place to explore on your own. Was attacked by a feisty Redwing Blackbird.
  • I mean I like dead plants and all but I can't really tell the difference between dead tulips and dead roses. I mean maybe it's the lack of color but I'm not a flower expert.
  • Pleasant outdoor and indoor plants, trees, bushes, and flowering plants to see. This ongoing and improving garden is good for any age. You are never too far from a little shade outside benches or inside buildings. :+ )
