The Myriad Botanical Gardens, as a beautiful place of respite in the Central Business District, is regularly filled with visitors of all ages enjoying a range of activities and programs.
Since its grand reopening in the fall of 2011, the Myriad Gardens Foundation has greatly increased the programs and offerings at the park, and has also dramatically increased its membership base from just a handful of members to nearly 2,800. Membership and facility rental fees help pay for the maintenance of the gardens as well as the wide spectrum of educational, recreational and cultural programming. This fiscal year, more than 200,000 people will enjoy events including movie nights, concerts, children’s events and more.
