Myriad Botanical Gardens, Oklahoma City

4.5
#2 of 6 in Parks in Oklahoma City
A tropical oasis, Myriad Botanical Gardens showcases multiple tiers of dense vegetation surrounding a sunken lake. Covering over 6 hectares (17 acres) just outside the city's downtown area, this urban park offers a range of educational programs designed to provide the public with a basic understanding of the principles of ecology, with a special focus on conservation. The signature feature centers around a tropical conservatory, a living plant museum filled with towering palm trees, tropical plants, waterfalls, and exotic animals. As you stroll through the park's lush outdoor gardens, look for several notable pieces of art, including an abstract sculpture by famed Dutch artist Hans Van de Bovenkamp. Check online for conservatory's hours and ticket prices. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Myriad Botanical Gardens by using our Oklahoma City road trip planner .

  • The botanical gardens are lovely especially around the holidays. We love to go into the Crystal Bridge and walk around and see all of the interesting plants. They also have a lot of events throughout the year that are free. Parking can be a pain downtown, but it is better certain times of day. Expect to pay a fee to park. If you go during the holidays you can also see the holiday shops nearby.
  • Wasn't much to it for $8.00 a person. It's been awhile since I was last there. I felt bad for the people I took because there used to be so much more. Won't go back. Do not suggest the inside. You don't have to pay for the outside. Plan on going to the outside in the spring to have a picnic.
  • Went to a small wedding here, and it was a lovely venue. They put signs up around a small area saying that it was reserved for a wedding. Rude, selfish people ignored the signs and wandered right through the ceremony anyway. They should assign an employee to each reserved area to actively chase such jerks away. Otherwise a lovely place that I would definitely visit again.
  • We were pleasantly surprised by the park surrounding Myriad Gardens. They have ice skating in December. There is a unique playground for kids. The park has waterfalls and trees that are lit right now for the holidays. We didn't get to go inside but I heard it is free entry every Sunday in December.
  • Absolutely a joy to walk around. The outside was relaxing and had some hidden places that were great to sit and reflect. Inside was good as well. The trails were fun and I enjoyed myself greatly seeing variety of plants they had to offer.
