How beautiful the gardens were.................the weather was terrible hot, but could always find a place to cool down.
To beat it all, how wonderful is the staff.
After leaving the gardens, and returning to my hometown, I came to realize I forgot a roll of camera film on one of the benches in the gardens.
I called the staff, and was sent to Lost an Found. They found my film, (in these days of such unrest in the World) Do You Know?!?!?! They mailed, YES MAILED, my film to me.
What kind of a place would do that anymore??!?!?!?!
I WILL BE BACK!!!!!
Thank you so very much.....................for sharing, and HELPING!!!!
The Missouri Bontanical Gardens is simply breathtaking. IT is such a great place to bring company, kids, a family, or just yourself. It is nice and quiet and you can really connect to nature and the beauty of the gardens here. The membership is definately worth spluring on if you plan to visit often. Beautiful!
I would put the Gardens on top of my list of St. Louis attractions. They are extensive, varied, and beautiful. It's truly something for the whole family: children LOVE to feed the fish in the Japanese gardens, and there's also a maze for them to run around in, a children's garden, and sculptues to climb on.
Two of my favorite areas are the beautiful Asian gardens, and the home gardening center. The latter is a great resource for Gardeners, demonstrating just about every kind of garden, from native wildflowers to herb to butterfly-gardens.
If you go on Wednesdays and Saturdays before 11am and you are a city resident, admission is free.
This is a must see place. We like to go around the Christmas holidays as they always have a new theme that they decorate with. We like to visit both indoors and out as there is lots to see. Cost is reasonable and usually you can find coupons in your Entertainment books for buy one get one free. The gardens are really breathtaking and should be viewed especially in the spring.
I love the Garden. It is a great place to walk around and your scenery is some of the best in St. Louis. Feed the ducks and the koi at the Japanese garden. Walk among hundreds of roses in the rose gardens (there are two of them). Kids can have fun in the fountains and in the Children's Garden.
If you are a St. Louis City or County resident, admission is free from opening to noon on Wednesday and Saturdays.
