  • Went at a transitional time of year, another month and the gardens would probably be blooming more. It is a very nice place. The Costa Rica glass house is beautiful, lots of butterflies. Talked...

  • The Botanical Gardens is one of the most magical places in Cleveland. If you are not a fan of the winter weather I highly recommend checking out the glass house. It's like being in a beautiful paradise in the middle of winter. The work that they put into maintaining the beauty of this place and the knowledge of the staff on all of the plants animals and insects is amazing. You can tell that the people that work here enjoy what they do. In the warmer months there are outside gardens to enjoy as well. Don't forget Holden arboretum is a partner and also a fantastic place to check out. Membership is not expensive and well worth it. This includes both the Arboretum and the Botanical Gardens. Truly two of my favorite places in Ohio.
  • A gem of the Cleveland Museum Circle family of attractions. Always clean, always bustling. The outdoor garden is marvelous year round. The oft missed library is very well taken care of and has a great selection of books on botany and preservation. Seasonal attractions are great for families with kids. Must visit while in Cleveland.
