“Flowers and sculptures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

The gardens are not large but very well done. The admission fee is a bit steep for botanical gardens but we went in anyway. We really enjoyed the sculptures that are spread throughout the grounds and how the gardens were divided. Of special interest were the herb gardens behind the central house and the children's area behind the gift shop.

“Pleasant Interlude”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

These gardens are not as large or elaborate as many other botanical gardens, but is a nice place to spend a few hours. There was a guided tour at 10 AM which made the visit much more interesting. I believe there is only one a day and if we had missed this tour, the visit be less enjoyable. One of the missions of the garden is to show what can be grown in the mountain environment of the Berkshires. Currently a wind theme is being shown with a number of different wind related sculptures throughout the grounds.

“Very Pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Though not as large as some other Massachusetts Botanical Gardens (Tower Hill in West Boylston comes to mind).this is worth a stop if you are in the area. Somewhat oddly, I thought, it is situated on both sides of state road and you have to cross over and back to enjoy the whole experience. Look both ways! Past that though, this is a really lovely way to spend an hour or two enjoying the beauty and the work that goes into making it beautiful. Bring a camera as there a lot of pictures to be taken.
