The White River Gardens are so beautifully kept - I would highly recommend a visit here if you are in downtown Indianapolis and wish to get away for a little relaxation. Always good to play a bit of Pokemon Go in as well!

We stopped here after visiting the zoo. This is the type of place where I wish I had a book with me so I can find some hidden nook and read. Very peaceful.

The gardens are a nice green space break from the concrete jungle! The outdoor portion is lovely. Enjoyed the Lego displays. Indoor garden is a quick visit but the outdoor garden winds around with new sections to be discovered!

This is definitely a place to visit. It is so pretty and peaceful. We went when they had the lego exhibits which were amazing. But even without them the gardens are gorgeous. We made it a part of our Indianapolis Zoo visit and were not...More

Colorful, well planned out for minimal space. The "wedding" area is a perfect backdrop any bride should consider for her event. Lots of different areas, with tons of varieties of plantings. Very peaceful and relaxing.

The White River Gardens are adjacent to the Indianapolis zoo and included in the price. If you enjoy being outside and viewing plants,flowers, landscaping you'll love this visit.

Great place for walkers and to spend some me time. I went early morning and it was peaceful. Could not ask for a better place to send some alone time.

Included with INdy Zoo admission. The butterfly house is so fun and enlightening for any age, and the gardens are breathtaking. A popular destination for weddings, especially summer evenings.

I can tell the gardens should be beautiful. But in early March this are no out door plants. It looks like the backyard of an abandoned mansion. I'm not even sure why they bother to open it before they have any plants. Although, even with...More

You should just buy the adult (or senior?) ticket that covers everything - it is just under $10.00 each. I don't know if there is a separate price for only the Gardens. Also, it is free on Jan. 15, Martin Luther King Day... More
