Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park offers various tours which highlight numerous aspects of the gardens. Depending on what visitors are interested in, tours can range anywhere from 2 to 8 hours. Tours can revolve around family fun, seasonal highlights, or a love of art or horticulture. All tours can be personalized per visitor preference (indoor, outdoor, permanent or temporary) and can accommodate various interests (abstract, animals, botanical, water or art). There are even tram tours offered for those who need assistance.
The Taste of the Gardens Café allows visitors to enjoy a relaxing bite to eat along the water underneath an astonishing glass ceiling sculpture, but if the weather is nice, outdoor picnics are encouraged. There is also a gift shop where visitors can purchase souvenirs or gardening tools of their own.
In June, Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park will be celebrating the one year anniversary of the Japanese Garden by hosting an event. It will be held on June 21, 2016 from 9am to 9pm, and will include films, musical performances and tours of the garden.
Volunteer or Become a Member
Currently, there are approximately 200 staff members employed by the gardens, however, it takes quite a bit more man-power to keep the gardens up and running. There are more than 1,000 active volunteers and 27,000 members whose gracious gifts and constant support keep the gardens flourishing.
