Owner description: The Myriad Botanical Gardens is one of Oklahoma City’s most beloved public spaces, offering its visitors a 15 acre natural escape in the very heart of the metro known as downtown Oklahoma City. A children’s garden, an off-leash dog park, the Park House restaurant, “splash fountains,” as well as paths for walking and jogging provide guests young and old with a place in which to find solitude with nature or seek community and the company of others. The Myriad Gardens provides an elegant backdrop for events both large and small, ranging from concerts at the Bandshell to intimate weddings in the Crystal Bridge Conservatory. Additionally, the Myriad Gardens offers a variety of horticultural education programs for adults and children. Classes range from story reading, making chocolate, wreath-making workshops to the annual Oklahoma Gardening School and more. Thanks to a multi-million dollar renovation partially funded by the city, as well as a general revitalized interest in a vibrant downtown, the Gardens quickly is becoming an integral symbol of the new Oklahoma City and those who call it home.

The Myriad Gardens is a great place to go if you enjoy taking photos of different types of flowers. They have different flowers for different seasons so that it is good to visit at least once per season. They have flowers both inside and outside that range from the tropical flowers to the plants found in desert-like climates. They have many flowers that are not indigenous to Oklahoma, so it's a great opportunity to see something different for any Oklahomans who love flowers. I have gone both at the beginning and end of Summer and will be going again for all other seasons. The flowers were different both times I went even though I went in the same season. So, I plan to go at the beginning and end of every season so I don't miss any of the unusual but beautiful flowers and plants.

I came to Oklahoma from Hawaii, and I was excited to see the botanical garden. Not just the Crystal Bridge with it's tropical plant exhibit, but the entire complex.
There is plenty of fun for the children and adults alike... There is even a dog park. I am told they have special event hosting throughout the year. As well as theater in the summer and a skating rink in the winter.

I do admit, my favorite feature is the Crystal Bridge. They had a vast array of tropical species that I am familiar with. And while we were there, the butterflies were pollinating a lot of the plants.
It was wonderful.

Many fountains/water-features. Slowly curving paths, lots of benches, very inviting to just sit down, slow down, and enjoy. The gardens outside are varied, and free (except for special shows, like the big Halloween display for which they charged $5.00) You have to pay to go inside the conservatory--we were well-pleased just to stay outside.
Great place for a ramble with kids--there are ducks and koi in the big central pool--well, great place if you don't have trouble restraining yr kids from getting wet! Kids area has things to climb, touch, etc--very nice.

This is truly a mystical place. You get swept away in its beauty and can forget you are in the center of downtown.
They offer seasonal activities for many of the holidays.

This man made nature preserve is amazing and a must see for a casual walk through a tropical environment year round. If you enjoy walking and enjoying nature at your own pace this is the place for you! e
