Cleveland Botanical Garden is an ever-changing urban oasis that provides enrichment and inspiration through nine acres of exquisite outdoor gardens, the 17,000-square-foot Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouse featuring a spiny desert of Madagascar and a butterfly-filled Costa Rican rainforest, and seasonal exhibitions throughout the year.
