  • Lovely and peaceful way to spend the day! The gardens are well thought out with lovely unexpected waterfalls and benches to sit and really soak in the natural beauty around you. The rose garden was inspirational. The scent of the roses was amazing. The employee kept garden with the personal touch of scarecrows outfitted by the employee families was a delight to behold. The bubbles table and the shooting water fountain was delightful and playful in the space as well. We went specifically for the origami display but was enchanted by the overall gardens. It is a photographers' and artists' dream area! I would love to go back and try my had at capturing some of the tranquil scenes in watercolor. The gentle rolling paths are well maintained and it was nicely wheelchair accessible for my Mom as well. I was concerned that she would encounter uneven terrain which would make it difficult for her to enjoy, but that is not was what we found at all. We will be coming back again as we were not able to walk the whole grounds and also to experience different seasons. Looking forward to seeing it again in the fall.
  • Wonderful experience for the whole family. Beautiful displays of flowers, trees and shrubs. The playground was amazing for the children. The snack bar was well stocked with healthy foods. The entire grounds were well maintained and immaculately. All staff were helpful and pleasant.
  • I. Love. This. Place. I go with one of my best friends every single weekend to walk and play Pokemon GO. I look forward to it not just because I love my friends, but because I enjoy the calming clarity that comes from enjoying all the wonders contained within the Gardens. Thank you, Dow, for these wonderful paths to walk. I hope to continue being able to enjoy them until I no longer live close enough to make the trip.
  • This place is fantastic for adults and families. Dow Gardens is absolutely beautiful. You could spend all afternoon strolling through their gardens, wishing they were yours. The canopy walk is interesting and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend this place for a full day of fun, beautiful sights and family entertainment.
  • Loved it! Went during the week for the first time and it was not crowded at all. Staff was very nice and informative. The paths were so peaceful and the attention to detail was impressive. Made it to 3 or 4 areas on the map, will be back to explore more.
