Rotary Botanical Gardens is an award winning, 20-acre non-profit botanic garden, home to many dramatic and themed gardens. Some have an international focus, such as the Japanese and English Cottage gardens, while others are less formally-structured, such as the children's garden, Hosta Hollow, the fern and moss garden, and other seasonal displays. Much of the garden is wheelchair and stroller accessible, with wide, level paths and many benches to sit and take in the surrounding beauty. In December, the Gardens presents the spectacular Holiday Light Show.
Returning in 2017 are the Hummingbird Haven, the Giant Aquarium featuring the book Commotion in the Ocean, and the Heirloom Garden with over 100 varieties of annuals, perennials, herbs and vegetables from pre-1900. New this year, visit the Coleus Collection, a white garden, a fragrant garden, and the red, black and silver themed entrance and terrace gardens.
