A tropical oasis, Myriad Botanical Gardens showcases multiple tiers of dense vegetation surrounding a sunken lake. Covering over 6 hectares (17 acres) just outside the city's downtown area, this urban park offers a range of educational programs designed to provide the public with a basic understanding of the principles of ecology, with a special focus on conservation. The signature feature centers around a tropical conservatory, a living plant museum filled with towering palm trees, tropical plants, waterfalls, and exotic animals. As you stroll through the park's lush outdoor gardens, look for several notable pieces of art, including an abstract sculpture by famed Dutch artist Hans Van de Bovenkamp. Check online for conservatory's hours and ticket prices. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Myriad Botanical Gardens by using our Oklahoma City road trip planner .

  • The gorgeous tulips in the Spring time makes the gardens my favorite midday walk break downtown. Saw the first Monarch, albeit early, of the season. The children's garden is in full swing and composting applications on the Great Lawn will yield wonderful soft grass for the upcoming concert series and other great programming at the Gardens! Happy Spring! 🌷🌷🌷
  • If you have ever done gardening work, even something small and simple, you know how challenging and time-consuming the labor can be. Gardening is rarely referred to as an "affordable" venture. Trying to comprehend how they do this amazing work, literally covering every inch of available space with plant life, is a task in and of itself. Over time, it seems they have mastered effectively using the limited space with techniques that couple artistry with advanced efficiency. The Gardens feature plant life from all over the world, complete with effective educational displays for those who want to dig a little deeper in knowing what they are looking at. I share our personal experience to maybe help other families... We once purchased a season pass to this venue and it was a mistake for us. Looking back, I'm not sure what we were thinking when we bought it. Our kids were younger and we thought they would enjoy the gardens and all the amazing botanical workmanship. It wasn't long before the kiddos were happier to stay outside the facility and run around. Again, that is not by any fault of our own. I wanted to share this experience in case another might be considering what annual passes to purchase for family outings.
