The newly remodeld and updated gardens are amazing. The displays, flowers, plants and statuary are beautifully maintained. They are now even holding events. I haven't been there for many years and I'm so glad that they renovated it.

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

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.
