  • I've been going here my whole life, and its improved so much over the years! I recommend everyone to go to the Lumagination event! Last time I went I waited an hour in line just to get in, but it was very worth it. I was able to capture amazing photos and that's just on my phone! The park is kept up beautifully even though its usually a busy place. My recommendation is to make sure you park in the lot, my mothers car got broken into a couple years ago, and she talked to the staff who said to park there because they have cameras on the lot.
  • This will defiantly be a place that I return to. The self-guided tour was incredible, and sometimes they event offer a self-guided audio tour. The Cactus, flora and other plants were beautiful. I went with family and even the surrounding grounds were to die for. A must go to!
  • We went with the Botanical Gardens for our wedding and really enjoyed it! We worked mostly with Christina, the events director, and she was always quick to respond to our emails and full of ideas on different things we could do within the space. The gardens themselves were beautiful, and the outside ceremony we wanted came out spectacularly. Because it was a greenhouse it was a little warm inside for the reception, but the spaces looked beautiful and the guests all commented on how they had never been to a prettier venue. Overall, the Botanical Gardens is a beautiful setting and they are easy to work with. We recommend them to anyone looking for a great garden location!
  • If you love plants and flowers, go for it. Right now they remodel. We like to go there and bring some snack and sit down and enjoy the beauty. For my taste, the admissions are a littel bit too much... don't forget to walk around the nice pond.
  • This is an awesome place to go in Buffalo. There are a variety of different events and activities. David Clark's horticulture classes are outstanding!
