Cleveland Botanical Garden "Big Spring"

This year, Spring is bigger than ever. 30,000 brilliant flowers and their sweet scents awaken your senses from a winter slumber both indoors and out. Check out the website...www.cbgarden.org. The gardens were also featured on TV. Absolutely beautiful!

After, we can stroll around University Circle, go to the Cleveland Art Museum (free) and if anyone knows of a restaurant in the area, we can go there, too.

Price of admission to the Gardens is $12.00. If a group of 15 attend, it is $9.50.

Sorry I had to cancel Playhouse Square this morning but I have an appointment at 10:00 that I cannot miss. I will reschedule it at another time.

Make sure your cameras have fresh batteries:-)

I plan to be there at 10:00 that morning so I can walk around and take pictures beforehand outside.  The meetup will still be at 12:00.  We can meet inside by the ticket booth.  I will be wearing an orange hoodie and will have a sign. I am able to access our group site on my phone and will keep updating our status for those who won't be there at 12;00.  Looking forward to seeing everyone!

      We were having such a fun time at the Mexican restaurant after the gardens the waiter lifted his container of water and started laughing with us saying "Must be tequila in here, not water"!

      I am willing to get there at 10:00. Sometimes it is easier to get a parking spot if you arrive when they open.

    Not sure what I want to do now..how long does the tour last that we originally planned to do ?

    April 1, 2013

    • Debbie

      Peg, we walk around on our own, there is no tour.

      April 3, 2013

      Debbie I found this info for the playhouse tours...Tours depart every 15-minutes from the State Theatre Lobby from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM. Tours last approximately 1-1/2 hours including a 12-minute video presentation before the tour. Tour includes lobbies, theater auditoriums and backstage areas. Restrictions can apply and some areas may be prohibited.
