Situated downtown, the Myriad Botanical Gardens sprawl across 17 acres and feature outdoor and indoor spaces for year-round fun. Among the gardens' many paved paths are two interactive water features popular with little ones, including the Thunder Fountain, which mimics a thunderstorm with light and noise. But the gardens' star attraction is undoubtedly the Crystal Bridge Conservatory, which houses thousands of tropical and desert plants across its 13,000 square feet.
Recent visitors used phrases like "hidden gem" and "city jewel" to describe the gardens. Reviewers suggest bringing a lunch to make a day of your visit. Travelers also say the fee to see the conservatory is completely worth it, calling it a beautiful oasis.
You'll find the gardens between the Devon Tower and Chesapeake Energy Arena in downtown Oklahoma City. Visiting the outdoor grounds is free, but entrance to the conservatory costs $8 for adults and $5 for children between the ages of 4 and 12. The gardens and outdoor grounds are open daily from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.; the conservatory is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about the garden, including seasonal events, visit its website.
