Cleveland Botanical Garden

For seventy-five years, Cleveland Botanical Garden has been one of Northeast Ohio’s treasures. It is a sanctuary for those who live and work in the city; a source of inspiration and information for gardeners; a living laboratory for students, teachers, and researchers; a healing presence for those with special needs; and a catalyst for urban revitalization.

Garden guests enjoy delightful surprises, quiet moments, and lots of fun as they explore 10 acres of beautiful outdoor gardens and the 18,000-square-foot Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouse. Your Glasshouse adventure takes you into the Costa Rican rainforest full of lush plants, butterflies, and birds, as well as to the spiny desert of Madagascar, where prickly plants, out-of-the-ordinary blooms, and wonderfully weird plants and animals welcome you.
