If you're visiting the Pittsburgh area and would like to visit some botanical gardens, Phipps is located near Carnegie Museum and CMU, next to Schenley Park. Plant collections range from seasonal flowers to cacti, bonsai, ferns, succulents, and a wide range of tropical plants. Themed displays include intricate brick work, fountains, waterfalls and reflecting pools.

Outdoor gardens are open during winter holidays featuring colorful lighting displays, as well as during warmer weather. During our visit, one wedding was in progress while another wedding garden was in the process of being decorated.
