If you live in Grand Rapids, you likely know how awesome Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park is. There are art and nature exhibits all year long, plus their Summer Concert Series.

Frederik Meijer Gardens is being nationally recognized! The park is up for “Best Botanical Garden” in a USA Today and 10Best readers poll.

The 20 botanical gardens in the running were chosen by a panel of experts, and now it’s up to a public vote.

Of the Grand Rapids’ attraction, USA Today and 10Best says:

Spanning 158 acres in Grand Rapids, the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park features four-seasons outdoor gardens and a five-floor, 15,000-square-foot Tropical Conservatory, where visitors can see tropical plants from around the world, including fig trees from India and orchids from South America. Areas worthy of exploration include the Carnivorous Plant House, Japanese Garden, Victorian Garden, colorful Perennial & Bulb Garden and the serene Wege Nature Trail.”

Frederik Meijer Gardens was in the running last year as well, and came in at No. 5.
