A great spot for an indoor activity and a wander around a garden. This conservatory is so beautiful. We were there at sunset for a function and had a most enjoyable evening. The plants are well laid out and well labelled.

Visited when there was a light show. It was a very nice experience. It could do with more plants, although I think in the summer it's even better.

I have been to the National Botanical Gardens in DC. They pale in comparison to our gardens in Buffalo. The staff is wonderful and all the recent new additions are breathtaking. Any one looking for a truly wonderful time visit

South Park is worth a visit. To be clear, the facility is not large, but it is interesting. First, the conservatory buildings are well preserved given they were built in the 1890s! Second, the displays are varied (rain forest, desert, herbs, orchids, vines). It is...More

We enjoy going to gardens whenever we visit a city. This gem had a wonderful conservatory and very nice outside gardens. I would recommend a stay of one and a half to two hours.
