Myriad Botanical Gardens & Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory
A lush paradise within an urban landscape, the Myriad Botanical Gardens & Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory is a premier destination in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City. This award-winning, 15-acre area features an impressive, community-oriented outdoor space that is a hub of activity.
Take a walk through the gardens to watch the serene stream and calming waterfalls flow, sit for a while on a bench and listen to the sounds of the city or admire the unique plants and flowers that dot the landscape. Your four-legged friends are welcome in the Myriad Botanical Gardens Dog Park, where dogs will enjoy a jaunt around the park leash-free.
During warmer months, the awe-inspiring, interactive Thunder Fountain cools off young visitors as it replicates the cycle of a thunderstorm, complete with heavy downpours followed by water-flower blossoms. The fountain operates from 10am-8pm daily from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
The Children's Garden invites kids to climb, jump and play among the gardens in a colorful playground with grassy mounds, oversize letters and metal structures. Sunday night concerts and art exhibits lend a well-rounded cultural flare to the Gardens programming. In the winter, the gardens become part of Downtown in December with an ice skating rink and a variety of seasonal programs.
A sight to behold, the Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory is a 224 foot-long round glass structure with over 1,000 plants species from all over the world. Divided in two regions - tropical rainforest zone and dry tropical zone - the conservatory features serene walking paths. Walk above the treetops on the catwalk and look down into the greenery for a bird's eye view. See endangered palm trees, begonias, bromeliads and over 1,500 orchids. Yellow and black zebra longwing butterflies and free-roaming amphibians live within the conservatory, along with Japanese koi in a sunken pond.
