Lovely garden, my niece loved the butterflies and the staff is both knowledgeable and friendly.

Reiman Gardens is small to medium size garden located near to Iowa State University Football stadium. Very warm welcome staff. Admission is $9 for general (adult), but it is definitely worth if you visit there right time. Reason I mention right time is; Once the summer ended, most plants are kind of dead and specially roses are all dead. So, best time to visit there is during summer. And they have a dedicated area for "butterflies", which is awesome. Another tip, butterflies are fully active when there is full sun light. It might take one hour or more to cover the whole garden. Other side of the garden, you can see the world largest gnome. Apart from the plants, they have nicely landscaped the area with metallic artwork, they are absolutely beautiful when there is enough wind to move those metal pieces. Ideal for short trip, relaxation and family time.

Great flowers and trails. Worth seeing the special exhibits.

Great variety of plants in a rather small area. Well maintained and a fun place to explore on your own. Was attacked by a feisty Redwing Blackbird.

I mean I like dead plants and all but I can't really tell the difference between dead tulips and dead roses. I mean maybe it's the lack of color but I'm not a flower expert.

Beautiful! The gardens were great, the weather was awesome and the butterfly exhibit was really neat! They have a lot of places to sit (in the shade) and an interactive children's garden area. There are amazing sculptures made from ocean garbage. The artist has a talent for colors. The price was reasonable for our family of 5, and there were plenty of bathrooms and water fountains.

Dottie Babycakes

The butterflies and flowers are as amazing as the artisic wind sculptures! Enjoyed it with one of my grand daughters so that made it even more special❣️

Kerry Hastings

A Home Depot customer service person in Hadley, MA recommended we see these gardens, so we did and it was worth the drive. The gardens are beautiful and we enjoyed the trash sculptures. It was easy to spend a day here, relaxing, and strolling around the grounds. And sitting in the butterfly area and just enjoying the butterflies was a pleasure. It is worth the time to go out of your way to visit these gardens.

Always wonderful with new blooms each visit. I have happy memories of taking my mother when she came to visit. Gift shop has unique & educational items, especially gardening books


We stopped by here on a recent trip to Adventureland, and we were pleasantly surprised! While not as big as some other botanical gardens, Reiman is just a beautiful, well-maintained place to visit. The kids especially loved the butterfly exhibit, and I think every one of them had butterflies land on them. The outdoor exhibits are also very nice, and even though the gardens is very close to the road, you'd never know it walking through it. TIP: When walking along Lake Helen, be careful near the cattails because there are birds nests in there and the birds will likely fly over your head. Or in my case, a bird swooped right by my head, likely warning me to get further away from its nest.

I came to See Elwood the Gnome but was pleasantly surprised by all the beautiful sights as well as the butterfly enclosure and the various sculptures made out of trash that had been taken out of various environments. Great place to bring the family for a relaxing day out.

Loved the butterfly wing. I’m not a huge flower person but the gardens are spectacular. Would be worth going out of the way to come here for someone who loves flowers.

Tamra Reall

Loved the conservatory and the butterfly house. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Given that it rained all day, it was great to have beautiful places to be indoors that felt like being the tropics!The meeting space also worked well for a short course put on by the university.

Nathan Brockman

Pleasant outdoor and indoor plants, trees, bushes, and flowering plants to see. This ongoing and improving garden is good for any age. You are never too far from a little shade outside benches or inside buildings. :+ )

Beautiful as ever

Bubba J McSmith

John Hsieh

A must visit place for anyone that is remotely close to Ames. The butterfly wing alone is well worth the admissions fee. If you are so lucky as to possess a current ISU student ID card, your admissions fee is free. I love taking photos at Reiman Gardens year-round. Doesn't matter the season, there is always something beautiful worth taking pictures of. Aside from the butterfly wing, there is also Elwood, the world's largest concrete gnome, and a miniature campanile that plays songs.

Carol Martinez
