Nice but still under development

Pretty grounds and flowers but many areas are still being developed so for now it's a quick tour. Kitchen, rock, and flower gardens were all nice.

Only 3 acres in size, this botanical garden is a work in progress with two more acres under development. Most of the tulips were past their prime, but we still enjoyed walking around the grounds and admiring them plus some purple iris. Surprisingly the visitor center and store are closed on weekends. This was the day before Easter and I... More

For a nice relaxing quiet time, this is the place. The staff changes the look regularly so you can come back and see a different look. It's especially beautiful in the spring when the tulips and daffodils are in bloom but it's very nice anytime of the year.

I'm always amazed how beautiful Ciener Gardens are, no matter what time of year I go by. There is a nice little gift shop inside. The gardens and building are available to rent for private events. Gardens are free!

This is lovely and can be seen either at leisure or quickly. It's right in the heart of town so you can do other business too.

I rated this garden based on size as compared to other botanical gardens I've visited. While some gardens could take hours, an hour here is sufficient to take in its beauty. There is ample parking and it's free, so that should be taken into account as well.

Weddings, Reunions or browsing the grounds, you will be satisfied with the helpful staff and large variety of plants. Unusual plants, raised vegetable garden and don't miss the spring tulips, trees and shrubs. I have attended their American Red Cross Blood Drives. Beautiful setting. One of my go to places for peaceful relaxation.

Nice place to visit. Still being expanded, but it seems off to a good start. There are a number of interesting and well labeled plants and flowers to see, along some nicely designed paths. Good parking area with scenic trees and shrubs all around it, and the admission is FREE! There seems to be room for it to grow, and... More

This is a fairly new Garden that is being planned and off to a great start. They are going for quality as they grow. The hostess in the Center was very friendly and helpful. We walked around the Garden and saw many interesting plants. We look forward to going back in a few years and seeing the growth. It is... More
