    16 acres of manicured gardens along with an indoor conservatory. Just southeast of the Botanical Gardens is a new beer garden.

    Pretty outdoor free gardens, great to walk around or sit on a shady bench. Herb garden has a really large variety of plants!

    You absolutely cannot skip the Thai Pavilion if you're here. You'll kick yourself otherwise. It's magical

    The botanical garden is definitely worth the 2 USD. Bring a camera, & take lots of pictures. Climb the tower also!

    The Thai pavilion is beautiful. In the winter the conservatory will help warm you up.

    Incredible free garden with beautiful outdoor displays. The indoor garden is also great, it does have a small fee though. Make sure to go to the Thai garden it is amazing.

    Beauty abounds in plentiful outdoor spaces. The wooden arbor is completely brilliant. Who knew?

    It's worth the $2 to see the amazing assortment of tropical plants in the dome, while the outdoor gardens are free and great for meandering around with kids

    Butterfly garden is disappointing & a waste of your time & money. Much prefer the beautiful outdoor garden.

    We recommend you bike here! The paths leading directly to the gardens see sights such as community gardens and coops. Be sure to save some film for the gardens--the colorful foliage is striking.

    Check out the Thai Pavilion & Garden. It was a gift from the Thai Government and the Thai Chapter of the Wisconsin Alumni Association. Great for photography, fun for the kids. Read more
