There is so much to see here, plan on spending at least half a day so that you don't feel rushed. I spent about 5 hours here, including a break for lunch at their garden restaurant (which was delicious).

We only had about 3 hours but walked through the beautifully laid out garden paths. Due to time of year, flowers were not abundant but thoroughly appreciate the gardens and what it takes to maintain it. Wonderful gift shop also.

I have found things to enjoy when the snow is on, in the rain or on a glorious sunny day the garden is always wonderful.

It is beautiful - Amazing architecture and beautiful plants throughout the park. The historical buildings are wonderful. I have never seen lily pads as big as the ones in the park.

Unless you are a botanist, a morning or an afternoon is enough to see the highlights. Otherwise you could spend a lifetime. :)

The Botanical Gardens are less than a half hour away from Bush Stadium. If you like flowers and horticultural things, this is a place for you to visit. If not, don't.
