Since we live in Grand Rapids, it is great to visit during each of the seasons and see the changes in flora. The sculptures are carefully positioned to be enhanced by their surroundings.

We love the Meijer gardens, and visit at least once a year! Our favorite time to go is in the early spring for the butterflies, but we enjoy visiting any time during the year to see the beautiful gardens and sculptures! Pack your walking shoes, a stroller for the littles, and some snacks and spend the day exploring!

We have visited about 6 times since we moved to the area and have been impressed each time. The favorite is fall. I have not seen so many garden mums in one spot. Plus gords and huge pumpkins. But, don't forget the sculptures and kids area.

This is a very beautiful place. We visited while they were displaying their Christmas trees that represented different trees for different countries. It was spectacular. We were fortunate to be able to walk the grounds because the weather was not too cold during our stay. Words cannot describe what a beautiful special place this is and should not be missed... More

The Gardens and Park are an incredibly well thought out melding of nature, art and nature's art. The botanical garden is large, well organized and well maintained. The sculpture park has indoors and outdoors displays and the display of sculpture in natural settings adds to the beauty - in every season. There is a children's area outdoors where kids can...

Sadly when we got there a storm was brewing, however we got to do the tram tour, me and 15 of my co workers. The tram guide was friendly and knew what she was talking about, we didn't get to walk around at any of the stops due to the storm coming and we kind of had to hurry. However... More

This center of activity is always a welcome place to visit. Some displays change with the seasons others remain quite the same. Must do list.

Beautiful even in the fall with a little chill in the air. 3 mile walk around the grounds took about 1-2 hours.

Boyfriend and I thought we'd check out this huge garden and were sorely disappointed. Gardens were nothing to go on about and the sculptures looked like they were made of items you'd find in the dump, then pieced together. Maybe we aren't cultured enough to enjoy this place. If you're not into 'art', I'd avoid this place. 😖✌🏼️
