Spring Blooms opens April 1 at Cleveland Botanical Garden

It’s finally spring, and soon (we hope) it will finally start to feel like it.

Cleveland Botanical Garden will spring you into the season beginning April 1, when Spring Blooms opens. Thousands of tulip, hyacinth and narcissus bulbs have been planted in the outdoor garden, according to CBG. And when they bloom, they’ll bring with them the sight and scent of spring.

That fickle Cleveland spring weather might interfere with your chance to enjoy the outdoor blooms, but the indoors also will be filled with foliage and flowers, according to CBG.

Other activities to enjoy during Spring Blooms:

  • The Hershey Children’s Garden opens for the season on March 31. Also for the kids: hands-on activities in the Japanese Overlook Hallway.
  • A butterfly release happens in the Costa Rica biome at 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays.
  • Tours of the Glasshouse are offered at 1 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays, and at 7 p.m. Wednesdays.

Spring Blooms runs from April 1 to May 13. CBG is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesdays, and from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission to CBG is $12 for adults, $8 for children ages 3-12, and free for children 2 and younger. Botanical Garden and Holden Arboretum members are admitted free.
