“A bit of the past.”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

It depends on when you go. They try really hard to keep this place up, but you can tell it needs cash to keep up.

“Spring was in the air!”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

The Botanical Gardens had a wonderful spring flower display. Vibrant colors and the fragrances were delightful. Spent a couple of hours enjoying the various rooms containing a large variety of plants and flowers. A pleasant afternoon.

“Great Winter Break !”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Always a bright and sunny space in the coldest of Buffalo's winters. Special events take place all year long and Easter time is our favorite time for a visit.

It's like stepping into another preserved world---especially love the water falls and all the fountains and the koi pond!

“Can you say flowers”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

I love this place. It's a great place to take Mom for Mother's day.
When the flowers are in bloom outside it's really pretty. I really like the exotic plants and the smell inside the building. There's a nominal fee to get in and they have a plant sale where a person can pick up some interesting plants.
