OSU Botanical Garden is located at main campus of OSU. It is beautiful at spring and summer. This is a really nice place to go with kids. It is very educational for kids. The collection of plant is very large. Also you can talk to people who work there to get more information on plant species. We use to go there once in a while. My kids like to collect plants they like when we go camping. They keep them in a special notebook. When they see a plant they do not know, we save it. Next time we go to the Botanical garden, we take it with us and try to figure out what is it by looking the collection. When we do not have any plants to identify, we just wonder around and look at flowers. It is very relaxing. The Botanical Garden is free for everyone and open pretty much all the week.
