This is a beautiful (and FREE!) botanical garden. The trails are great for a walk or jogging. My daughter especially likes the fairy garden area. The flowers in the summer months are amazing and we enjoy seeing many butterflies.

This botanic garden is real great for hikes because it has lots of trails and trails are used for hiking because when you hike you need a path to follow and trails are good for that.

Beautiful location for a small, private informal event. Gravel road is a little tricky for elderly and handicapped to navigate and would suggest driving them up to the lodge to drop off before parking.

My family of three was looking for something to do outdoors for a few hours during our two day stay in Morgantown. I expected the WV Botanical Gardens to be more on par with what we're used to seeing at the NY Botanical Gardens. We...More

Yes, I have seen them there. I believe they have a leash mandate and a pet waste policy. It doesn't seem to be on their website. If you have additional questions contact Erin Smaldone (Education Director) at 304-216-8704.
