What a treat to come in from the snow and cold of Cleveland winter. The glasshouse makes the Cleveland Botanical Garden a unique place to visit. It feels like you teleported to visit a hot, arid, Spiny Desert Biome of Madagascar. Oh the joys and wonders this biome has to share. With indigenous animals, insects, and plant life to Madagascar. Then you teleport over to Costa Rica, to visit the Cloud Rain Forest Biome. This misty, hot, and humid eco-system with lots of surprises around every corner. Enchants everyone admiring the exotic butterflies, birds, wildlife, and horticultural wonders. Since Orchid Mania 2016 was in progress, it was so colorful with sweet fragrances drifting through the air. It certainly makes a paradise for birders, butterfly enthusiasts, photographers, and plant lovers alike. You truly forget you are in Northeast Ohio. I had visited last Saturday, regrettably the first time since my last visit back in the late 90's. I liked it so much I bought a membership. Then I had to return this Saturday for more delight. Between the two visits I shot just over 1200 pictures. I look forward to the next big showcase event. Not to mention, returns through the different seasons to enjoy the beautiful outdoor gardens. I also plan on joining the Cleveland Botanical Garden Photography Club, as well. Coming from a Professional Horticulturist and Avid Photographer's point of view. Cleveland Botanical Garden is a Crown Jewel of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland. I highly recommend that you MUST GO TO.

Botanical Garden Cleveland

The Cleveland Botanical Garden, located in the University Circle neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio, in the United States, was founded in 1930 as the Garden Center of Greater Cleveland. It was the first such organization in an American city. Originally housed in a converted boathouse on Wade Park Lagoon, the center served as a horticultural library, offering classes and workshops for gardeners and spearheading beautification projects in the community. In 1966, having outgrown its original home, the Garden Center moved to its present location in University Circle, the site of the old Cleveland Zoo. Remnants of the old bear pit still remain in the Ohio Woodland Garden. In 1994, the organization’s Board of Trustees changed the name to Cleveland Botanical Garden to reflect a dramatically expanded mission and launched an ambitious capital campaign to develop a facility that would support the enhanced program agenda. The expanded and renovated building, designed by Graham Gund Architects of Cambridge, Massachusetts, opened to the public in July 2003.

I really enjoyed the Cleveland Botanical Garden. I am from cleveland and never have previously been. I was definitely missing out. There are two parts, the glass house and the garden. The garden portion is mostly all outside and appears to be very large with interactive areas but due to it being winter interactive things were not open and obviously everything was dead for winter. So that's the only reason for the 4 stars and not 5. I would like to return in the summer and see the garden in full bloom. The second portion was called the glass house. This portion was 2 floors and entirely made from glass. There were many different plants, flowers and even butterflys and humming birds. It was beautiful and even with just the glass house portion made it well worth it.

As a Case student, one of the benefits is being able to go to all the museums around campus for free, and I like to take full advantage of that. Of all the museums, I have to say the Botanical Gardens are my favorite. Of course, I may change my mind in the dead of winter when all the plants are dead, but during the few weeks at the end of Summer and in late spring that I am here to enjoy them, it is absolutely beautiful. I like to start by going to through the Greenhouse area. The first is the desert area, and honestly my favorites in there have to be all the cute animals. The next area is the rainforest, which is filled with butterflies and cute little birds. There is this one particularly elusive blue butterfly that never stays still, but is absolutely gorgeous. The first time I visited I may have spent a good half hour trying to chase that thing down with no luck. I have to say though, when you look at a butterfly close up, it is a little creepy. Once you exit the greenhouse, next is the outdoor gardens. It is pretty big, and you could definitely spend a long time walking through. I love all the different themes, and there are lots of peaceful spots to sit and enjoy. There are also lots of beautiful spots that could make a good background for some cute photos! Even after going to botanical gardens all over the world, this one here still has a very special place in my heart. If you haven't already, definitely come out to visit (not in the Winter of course!).
