  • We visited this location at the end of fall during Covid, so the flowers and foliage wasn't abundant, nor were the people and educational opportunities. I plan to go back in the spring when flowers.....  more »
  • Parts of the forested area took a direct hit from the tornadoes of 2019, but the boardwalk has been rebuilt. The swamp forest doesn’t really feel like a forest due to all the trees that were fallen...  more »

  • This park is gorgeous and very clean. All of my children enjoy the kids area especially the water and sand features. There are so many paths to walk along and admire the flowers and plants. It’s very peaceful and admission is free. There are several grassy areas with tables for picnics also. It takes my family nearly an hour to drive to Wegerzyn but it’s the perfect day trip!
  • What a beautiful park! There were butterflies all around. It is very large. There is a man made, chlorinated creek for kids to play in. There are large musical instruments, and sand boxes. Go! Have fun! Relax and enjoy.
  • I love this place!!! There is so much to see! The gardens are well-kept and beautiful!! There are so many directions to go! Trails lead to several different habitats (one area under construction, but when finished, it will be great as well!)! There are places to sit and rest or just enjoy the view! Best of all there is an area designed just for kids!! - It has a sandbox and a non-scary cave to walk/run through! It is an awesome place for kids and adults!!
  • Love taking my boys here. It's always a beautiful place to take pictures and get the kids outdoors. I love the area they have made for children. The water area is great and they have a sensory area for children to learn. ❤❤❤❤
  • Do you love flowers? Do you love quiet places? Do you have hair? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you will love wegerzyn. As a photographer, I have been coming here for 10 years, as a fan, 14 years. If you want to see an explosion of happiness you need to visit.
