    Beautiful place in Dayton. Nice to go walk around and enjoy nature. Has a pretty big kids area where they can play. Outside of the kid area though it's very calm and quite.

    This place is awesome. I've been meaning to bring the kids here for a while and never got around to it. Finally made the trip to attend Nature Knowledge, which is a fun, FREE, event, and ended up staying for 3 hours after the event ended to play in the water features and sand boxes. There are also sensory gardens that kids can interact with as well as scavenger hunts around the garden.

    This is the most beautiful park, among all the other beautiful parks in Dayton Ohio. Dayton is the place to live! We have been to Wegwezyn Garden at least 10 times this year and it's always different. We bring camera's every time and so does everyone else. It's a favorite for Easter, Prom, and any other special event!!! 5 stars all the way!

    This is a very nice family gardens with a very nice play area for children...all free. The hiking trails are fairly short but nice. There is a long boardwalk over a wetlands area. The flowers and crab apple trees are really beautiful in the Spring. The trails have many wildflowers.
