Cleveland Botanical Garden reviews
Our visit was during the tulip exhibit. Hundreds of beautiful purple tulips among other plants. Indoor display was much smaller than I expected. Outdoor has a second level where you can observe... more »
Beautiful butterfly room with vegetation. Do not miss if you are in area. Loved walk through the spacious grounds more »
Was a lovely experience and definitely better than I expected. The glasshouse section with the canopy walk was extraordinary; full of butterflies and a nice jungle-like ambience. The flower gardens were in full bloom and were great. The Japanese rock garden was quite well thought out as well. Excellent garden and great for a casual stroll among the trees and flowers. Little rabbits and chipmunks can also be seen scurrying around the gardens as well.
I've only seen the enclosed areas as it started to rain right after we arrived at the Gardens. I was amazed at the attention to detail that they displayed to create this exhibit! I can't wait to sees the outdoor areas when we come to Cleveland next month!
