Visiting in the fall like we did one does not get the full effect of the gardens. But it is obvious the owners have put a lot of effort into laying out and planting the gardens.
Very nice tour of a private garden. If you are interested in gardens and plants/flowers, then it is wonderful. Note, there is a $10 fee per person.
We found these gardens from the trolley tour and are glad we had a chance to see them. Created on rock these gardens are a wonder of design, use of plants, especially for shade and well worth seeing. The gentlemen giving the tours have been in Galena a long time and also have great insight about the town and its... 更多
This botanical garden is hidden away in the heart of Galena. Our tour guide was personable and interesting. The trees and plants were spectacular. There is a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes.
Second time I've gone on a tour of Linmar Gardens. Extra thrill, owner gave tour. If you are a gardener or not, wonderful tour. It is amazing what he's done with this acreage. Don't miss it!
I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. I called ahead to ensure that there would be room on the tour, as they are only offered at 11 and 2, to nail down the location, and find out where to park.

Strolling through Linmar Gardens added a lovely note to our Galena sightseeing experience. These gardens are a couple of blocks from the downtown area, but worlds away once you're inside them. They're works of labor and love and, be forewarned, this is not a formal botanical garden experience: Plants aren't labeled, and the design is freeflowing and artistic, fueled by... 更多
This is a must for visitors to Galena. The gardens are amazing and the tour guides know so much about it. There is the foundation of an old Black Church there before the 1850. deer roam the grounds. I highly recommend this tour.
This garden tour is well worth the time & money. The gardens are in the middle of town and you wouldn't even think you were in town. We were there at the end of September and a lot of the plants weren't in bloom but I'm sure the gardens are spectacular during the summer season. Highly recommend this if you... 更多
