  • You will love this place. Peaceful, well maintained, they are committed to the community. Relax and enjoy. 
  • Would recommend to anyone. Visited while there was a farmers market. Picked up some coffee, preserves, baked goods for a family dinner and meats. Perfect surprise for out of towners. 
  • Great value if you buy an annual pass. Lots of activities all year long, fun Friday activities for kids in summer.

  • I love Dow Gardens! They've recently updated their signage which really helps navigate the gardens better. They change the landscape so frequently that you never get tired of going there.
  • Great garden that is definitely worth a visit. Admission is $5, or $10 buys you a yearly pass (kind of a no-brainer). If you have kids, there is a garden oriented towards them. They put on Garden Walks, the first Tuesday of every month, where they take you on a tour of the gardens and point out interesting plants or historical details. I also see people going to the gardens to read or to paint.
  • Beautiful place. So much to explore and great to go with kids. Plus if you enjoy Pokémon go this place is for you.
  • A visual delight! Beautiful gardens and a bargain at $5, Perfect place to enjoy the beauty of nature.
  • Absolutely beautiful grounds and it's insanely cheap to buy a pass to explore it all! My husband and I loved every second, even the children's garden was fun!
