  • The staff here does an amazing job of keeping the grounds looking pristine. The butterfly gardens are a unique and fun attraction to the gardens as well.  more »
  • Besides wonderful gardens, there is so much more. There has been a butterfly house, artwork and many activities  more »
  • Enjoyed our tour of the gardens. We went because of the world's largest concrete garden gnome (!), but the butterfly pavilion was outstanding.  more »

  • Excellent collection of flowers. Nice one day get away place. Good thing, entrance fee waived for Iowa State students.
  • Great flowers and trails. Worth seeing the special exhibits.
  • The butterflys were beautiful as well as were the gardens.
  • It was okay - not worth going. better to find a good trail.
  • 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.
