Since opening in 1988, the Myriad Botanic Gardens has inspired all ages to develop an appreciation for plants, gardens, and the importance of urban green spaces to improve the quality of daily life. It serves as a dynamic site to enjoy top-quality programs and activities. The Gardens is a center for horticulture education, cultural exhibits and performing arts. As a successful public-private partnership, the Gardens seeks to join with corporate and community groups to enhance the education, aesthetic, cultural and economic development of Oklahoma City.
The Myriad Gardens provides an elegant backdrop for events both large and small, ranging from concerts at the Band shell to intimate weddings in the Crystal Bridge Conservatory. Additionally, the Myriad Gardens offers a variety of horticultural education programs for adults and children. Classes range from story reading, making chocolate, wreath-making workshops to the annual Oklahoma Gardening School and more.
Volunteers assist staff in every area of operations at the Myriad Gardens. We are always in need of basic gardening and special event volunteers. We love to have groups volunteer at the Gardens for a community project and can accomodate a large group with advance scheduling.
