  • There are many bad gardens in the US but this is possibly the worst. Ugly, sprawling, overambitious, unplanned and often noisy. Dead, dying and mislabeled plants and weeds everywhere, barriers...

  • I was shocked to see what new management has done to the place. It’s no longer a way to encounter beauty and nature. It no longer cares about conservation or centuries-old traditions of garden...

  • Like every Wednesday I look for something interesting to fill my fabulous life. This time, I Invite a friend to enjoy a spectacular orchid exhibit. We headed to the New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill, 11 French Dr, Boylston, MA. I must clarify, that for this we prepare by buying the tickets in advance online. The staff was very friendly, and the place was packed with visitors of all ages. The garden had some awesome flowers and plants. This exhibit was indoors, and it was a nice break from having to be outside in the cold, but anyways I enjoyed the rain mixed with snow while I was appreciating the water fountain in the Pool Bundles sculpture in Domitian’s Pool... The dining area staff also were very welcoming servicing specialty, healthy foods to order. This is a wonderfully peaceful and clean place to visit. And I can't wait to return for a new adventure in full contact with nature. I recommend it.
  • We explored the new gardens at Tower Hill and they are exceptional. Very nice design. The gardens looked great too during our early spring visit. This place is a true treasure. We bought a family membership so we can visit again and again this summer. I highly recommend you do the same and support this great non profit organization.
  • This is an amazing place! The trails are well maintained and easy to walk. The indoor exhibits are gorgeous and many of the sculptural installations are a fun addition when you are outside. Very excited to come back and spend more time here in the summer!
  • Our parents were active volunteers for years. The place has expanded it's outdoor gardens and pavilions a lot since our last visit. The new expansion and walking paths are an outstanding addition. Everything is wheelchair accessable and the paths are easy to navigate for all ages. We had an excellent visit.
