  • 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!
