#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.

    The indoor exhibit is beautiful, it is a little pricy considering the amount of time you will actually spend inside. So make sure you use a discount card. The sky walk is great and they also have the ...  more »

    It's my new favorite place! Somehow I always forgot about it till my teenager and I came on a lark. Now I've brought my 2 year old grandson twice and we have a blast! The children's garden is so nice and there's an activity every day. The whole park is beautiful and clean.

    Absolutely love this place....great for kids and adults alike. Tons of plant life to look up and read about. Comfortable temperatures, clean facility, plants and areas taken care of very well. The area outside is beautiful as well! You won't regret taking your family. *military discount*

    Had a great time with my significant other. We walked through the surrounding park and paid to see the botanical garden as well. There was a buzz of activity. One group was celebrating a quinceaƱera and another was taking graduation photos. Free parking in the area on Sundays! Overall relaxing experience. Simply beautiful.

    Beautiful place to visit for every Season. We enjoy it each and every time as a family. So much going on there for the community.

    The grounds were absolutely beautiful. There were tons of people out and about, yet everything was all well maintained and clean. The indoor botanical garden was nice, but a little expensive. You could skip the indoor part and still have a nice time just walking around the grounds, especially if you have kids. There an amazing children's garden and lots of ducks and turtles for the kids to look at.
