Cleveland Botanical Garden: Step into a world of beauty and wonder. Cleveland Botanical Garden boasts some of the finest Gardens in the entire Midwest. Here are 10 beautifully landscaped acres of formal and natural gardens – each one a gem, each with its own distinct personality. The Rose Garden is a delight. The Japanese Garden is enchanting. The Children’s Garden is fun. And the terrace – with its fountain and lily pond – is an inspiring location for al fresco dining during the warm months.
The Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouse, which opened in 2003, is an 18,000 square foot, crystalline conservatory – the only one of its kind. Open year-round, the Glasshouse is home to two of the world’s most exotic, fragile and unique environments: the spiny desert of Madagascar and the lush, butterfly-filled cloud forest of Costa Rica. The Glasshouse may be the best butterfly house in Ohio! It features hundreds of exotic, beautiful butterflies flown in directly from Costa Rica every week of the year. The butterflies will make you and your friends of all ages smile with delight. With more than 350 species of plants and 50 species of animals, the Glasshouse is a dazzling journey across continents and an immersion in the unusual.
