  • The Buffalo Botanical Gardens is a great place for everyone. I don't know anything about flowers or plants, so I really enjoyed reading all the signs coordinating to each plant. The staff is very nice too. The photo opportunities! From beginner to advanced, you will get automatic beautiful pictures! I came here mainly because of that. I don't think I'm the best at photography, but my skills are more advanced compared to most. I had a lot of fun taking pictures.
  • Upon entrance, what took my breath away was not in fact related to vegetables. The initial breath taking view is that of the kind, helpful, endearing staff. Their obvious love for their jobs made the visit. Lesser botanicals would not have such top quality staff. After the amazing reception you are immediately greeted with the heart of the gardens. The beauty of the vegetation is mesmerizing and holds your gaze the entire visit as you transition from house to house. If you have ever, EVER, once in your life looked at a flower, plant, or tree and said "Wow, that's pretty" you would benefit from the experience provided at this facility.
