Springfield Botanical Gardens reviews
This is a beautiful place to walk and play. The paths wind through trees, grassy areas and small pocket gardens. There are fountains and a play area and so much to see. We enjoyed walking through..... more »
This was a very pleasant surprise. Master gardeners area quite nice. Loved the small butterfly house. Many other garden areas like a butterfly garden, Winter garden and rose garden. Good sized pond... more »
By far, the most beautiful park in the area. So much to offer for people of all ages. Miles of walking trails with numerous playgrounds along the way. The gardens are beautiful. The hosta garden is my favorite. My kids love the butterfly house. Live butterflies everywhere. Sometimes landing on them. It's also very educational. Best part is that it's totally free!!!! Donations are accepted. The Japanese stroll garden has a very small fee to get into it but very worth it. I highly recommend this park for gatherings, weddings, picnics, hiking or just getting out for fresh air.
We're so glad we visited. The Japanese garden had a surprise around every corner. The people working there were very nice and the gardens are well maintained. The kids especially loved the butterfly house. One could walk this place every day for a week and find something each time.
