We toured all the gardens and learned a lot on the way. The children's garden and educational area is just amazing and sure to please the children. There is seating throughout the gardens for you to enjoy the beauty. They have large rooms for meeting, dinners, etc. There is an outside model train garden and a large indoor tropical paradise with ponds of Koi fish and occasional frogs and wildlife. The gift shop has many unique items for everyone. I would definitely recommend this for families and individuals. They have many events throughout the year. They also have a butterfly house. It was delightful and tranquil along the Mississippi River.

Great place for Special Events. There is catering available if you need to book a private room. The children love the special garden made just for them. A true Gem in Rock Island, IL.

My cousin got married here. The scenery was beautiful. The ceremony was outside and the reception was inside. We took family photos in the botantical garden inside and out. Great place to visit and a great venue for a wedding. It was very romantic.

What a beautiful, well maintained garden. The Tropical Sun Garden (enclosed) has a number of tropical plants in a controlled atmosphere - not overwhelming and nice variety of plants. The outdoor gardens were beautiful this time of year (August), nice paths to walk to the various areas. The Children's gardens are fabulous - if we lived in the area and had children, we would go often. Best children's garden I've seen in any of the multitude of gardens we visited. We went on a Saturday morning and there were only a handful of other visitors there - this is definitely a hidden gem waiting to be discovered (although it was nice that it wasn't crowded). They offer facilities for meetings and weddings - definitely an outdoor venue I would consider if getting married, absolutely beautiful setting!
