The Cleveland Botanical Garden is located in the University Circle in Cleveland, Ohio. Originally known as Garden Center of Greater Cleveland, it was founded in 1930.

The garden was originally launched and first opened to the general public using a converted boathouse located in Ohio?s Wade Park Lagoon. The garden was initially opened as a horticulture library that aims to educate new gardeners and at the same time provide workshops for experienced gardeners in the area. The Cleveland Botanical Garden was used as a resource for beautification projects for nearby neighborhoods and communities.

The Botanical Garden moved to its present location in the University Circle in 1966 due to the garden growing bigger through the years. Before becoming what is now known as the Cleveland Botanical Garden, the area was formerly known as the former site of the Cleveland Zoo. The Board of Trustees changed the name of the garden from the previous ?Garden Center of Greater Cleveland? to the modern ?Cleveland Botanical Garden? in 1994 to help in branding and in gaining further support. The Cleveland Botanical Garden has also been subject of several popular cultural references including a prominent appearance in the television series ?Supernatural.?

Visitors are treated to a number of diverse gardens such as the Hershey?s Children?s Garden which is the first public children?s garden within the Ohio state. The Botanical Garden also features other types of gardens including their Japanese Gardens, the Mary Ann Sears Swetland Rose Garden, Western Reserve Herb Society Garden, the Woodland Garden, the Campsey-Stauffer Gateway Garden, CK Patrick Perennial Garden and the Theme Garden.
