  • Love this place. Fun for the whole family. Great events all year.
  • I took a class there. Plenty of room, used a screen so everyone could see. Instructor was very knowledgeable. The gardens are extremely cared for and absolutely beautiful.
  • A great family-friendly destination that seems to keep growing and getting better. At first, I thought it was just a big, boring green house, but this Quad Cities gem seems to keep getting more interesting. A wonderful place to spend a few hours with kids.
  • For personal or family visiting, it has many interesting plants, flowers and trees, and several other things of interest. I don't live near here. I was here for a relative's celebration of their anniversary, done at this Botanical Center. There were 40-60 people at this event (I don't know what their people limit is). The staff here did a great job. It was extremely nice.
  • We took our three boys here for the afternoon and they had a blast running around and looking at the flowers, then playing in the outdoor kid area. FYI the model trains only run for a few hours on Sunday afternoons.
