Come see beautiful Lendonwood Gardens, an eight-acre botanical garden near Grand Lake in northeastern Oklahoma. Shady pathways meander through more than a thousand types of plants, including azaleas, dogwoods, peonies, hostas, evergreen trees, and more.
Visitors will find several major collections of certain plants, such as false cypress, daylilies, rhododendrons, and Japanese maples. Lendonwood also is home to the Oklahoma Garden, featuring “Oklahoma Proven” plant designated by the Oklahoma State University Extension program.
For The Kids
- At the Welcome Center, be sure to ask for a butterfly stamped on your hand!
- Pick up a Lendonwood “Bingo” card in the Welcome Center and look for items shown; you might win a prize when you leave!
- Learn about the life-cycle of Monarch butterflies at the Monarch Waystation.
- Children of all ages like to feed the colorful fish in the Koi Pond! Bring plenty of quarters to buy fish food for those “starving” Koi (they’re not really starving – just very active in going after every bit of fish food!).
