Founded in 1930, the Cleveland Botanical Garden is the oldest civic garden in America. Its 4 hectares (10 acres) of meticulously kept greenery includes eleven different types of garden - Japanese, herb, rose, inspirational, terrace, gateway, children's, therapeutic, topiary, woodland and perennial. The amazing Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouse includes a vast greenhouse with recreations of two of the world's most fragile ecosystems, the sun-baked spiny desert of Madagascar and the misty cloud forest of Costa Rica, as well as an extensive library, a cafe and gift shop and other visitor services.
