A tropical oasis, Myriad Botanical Gardens showcases multiple tiers of dense vegetation surrounding a sunken lake. Covering over 6 hectares (17 acres) just outside the city's downtown area, this urban park offers a range of educational programs designed to provide the public with a basic understanding of the principles of ecology, with a special focus on conservation. The signature feature centers around a tropical conservatory, a living plant museum filled with towering palm trees, tropical plants, waterfalls, and exotic animals. As you stroll through the park's lush outdoor gardens, look for several notable pieces of art, including an abstract sculpture by famed Dutch artist Hans Van de Bovenkamp.

  • Lots of variety in the gardens - some beds, some slopes, some water, some places for children to play, etc. We liked the sage plantings in particular. The signature feature, the large cylindrical...

  • Nice visit, but unfortunately the Crystal bridge was closed. A great place to walk, stretch your legs, and enjoy the flora.

  • The place was beautiful - we just came at a time when they decided to do an update on the grounds. The big section closed off, and working on it. We still were able to visit a lot of the beautiful flowers and trees. So peaceful here, even though, it was a windy day so, we didn't stay too long. They also have artwork for sale in the office. Don't forget to donate as they need this to keep up the grounds.
  • What a beautiful place to take a stroll and enjoy some time with your loved ones. There are plenty of chairs and benches all around the park area to sit down and have picnics or relax. The enclosed Children's area with the splash pad is particularly fun and super cute. There's a merry go round next to the Children's okay are as well. When we went, the Crystal Bridge Conservatory was closed for construction so we didn't get to see any of it. However, there was plenty to explore and enjoy around the botanical gardens. Tips: it seems the homeless come bathe and cool down at the splash pad, though they didn't seem threatening and kept their distance from the kids, that's something to look out for.
