4.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Such beautiful botanical gardens with the fun pumpkin Festival going on. Great activity for reasonable price! 
  • What a beautiful place! No gates or fences, so it's very easy to walk around and enjoy the sights and leave whenever you want. It feels just like a public park, rather than a botanical garden. It's also free (at least the outdoor portion). Lots of benches and shade. I love the water. Overall great place to visit.
  • My husband and I have a membership!! This place is enchanting! I suggest going anytime; however, if going in the hottest days of summer, make it a morning trek. They have many events planned throughout the year. Dancing in the Gardens, Shakespeare Theater in the park. Summer movie nights. Sunday evening concerts, pumkinville, you name it. Their splash pad and kids park is phenomenal for kiddos during the summer. And if you play Pokemon Go, there are sooo many PokeStops!!!
  • Peaceful. Many free events. Beautiful. My kid loves it! My dog loves it! And my husband can see local talent here.
  • Large urban garden that serves both as an oasis and as a site for many events. Includes a children's garden, small dog area, large pond, terraces, several stages, and a tropical conservatory. All except the tropical conservatory are free (except for certain events). The Thunder Fountain in particular is amazing. Also has clean bathrooms available near the stage, in the children's garden, and by the cafe, called Ice House. Incidentally, the Ice House food is fine but the portions are very small for the price. If you are just walking around the grounds, a half hour to 45 min is probably enough. Add a half hour to visit the conservatory. Add additional time for children's garden, the Thunder Fountain, or other activities.
  • Geez this place is amazing to take a date! Inside and out. Even if it's not open. Go walk around down there (just be safe because some people get jumped if you go someone sketchy... like allies)
