This place has it all, culture, stuff for the kids, stuff for the big kids. The grounds are well maintained and the people are creative. Every time I go in it's always different and interesting. I very much appreciate that this place is in Grand Rapids.

We always take new visitors to GR to the FMG. Children love the interactive garden, there are always new exhibits for us to see and constant improvements & additions. The Japanese Garden is one of the best we've seen in North America.

Meijer Gardens is a jewel, a gem, and my favorite to view sculpture anywhere. Artists are given perfect settings for their works of art. No matter what season, a walk through the sculpture park is peaceful and exciting at the same time. The tram is available in season if walking is difficult. Our driver shared interesting facts about the art,... More

A great time to see art, sculptures, and enjoy Michelangelo's great horse. The old Michigan farm, walking trails, and boardwalk are delightful. Good resource library, giftshop, tropical green house and plant exhibit.

I've visited for the sculpture, the summer concerts, the plantings, and Art Prize. A visit always feeds the soul.

As always Frederick Meijer Gardens has done an excellent job of curating this exhibit. I especially liked the placement of sculptures throughout the garden exhibits.

This place is awesome. They seem to always have something going on. Been there twice in the summer and recently for the orchid show. I cant wait to see what it looks like in the spring when all the trees are blooming.

This place is a great escape year round! When you need to feel warmth on a cold wintery day or a place to reflect. I love to take my grandkids here to experience the outdoor spaces. My daughter is getting married here as well. This is a place to go rain or shine with indoor/outdoor options.

Really a beautiful show with new and fantastic orchids on display. Left the show after buying a few and resolve to come back with my orchids next year to enter in the exhibits. Great meeting people who we could talk with about their experiences. Spent time with a volunteer caretaker in the orchid area of the Meijer Gardens who spends... More
