Alot more to come. I only got to see a small part. The place is 155 acres. So it would take days to visit the whole thing.

The thing is, I only got time to visit a small part of the area. We are going to have to go back and see the rest one of these days. I loved the boat ride. If anyone goes, make sure you take the canal tour!

The crazy thing dude is that I lived here all my life and never visited here. I never knew it was sooo big and nice. Next will be the zoo. So in a couple of weeks expect some pics of the zoo.

The gardens are huge. I have a year pass there and have been three times and have still not made it all the way thru.

Wow I had no idea that the Botantical Gardens had gotten so huge. I grew up just a mile from there off of Northampton Blvd. I only really remember visiting there once in the 1970's. I didn't know it had gotten so nice since then.

Nice looking botanical garden. We're finally getting one where I live later this year but I really don't think it's going to be anything as nice as that one.

It will years down the road. Its taken decades for it to get like that. Its 155 acres and I barely scratched the surface.

Is the city promoting the Botanical Gardens as much as they promote Downtown Attracitons. When I was growing up the only time you heard anything about the Botanical Gardens was around Azalea Gardens festival time. I always thought that this was a jewel in Norfolk's crown and should be more aggressively promoted. It is after all one of the first impressions people have of Norfolk when they arrive at the Airport.

World of Wonders exhibit opens at Botanical Garden

The $4.2 million garden in Norfolk Botanical Garden spans 3 acres and is filled with interactive exhibits. The garden is geared to children from ages 4 to 14, but anyone is welcome.

"It's a fun place to go, but the main purpose of it is to be educational," said executive director Donald Buma.
