The Myriad Botanical Gardens are a 15-acre floral paradise right in the centre of downtown Oklahoma City. In addition to flourishing plant life, rolling hills, walkways, sculptures, and a sunken lake, the gardens feature the seven-storey-high, circular Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory. The conservatory is an architectural wonder, home to exotic flora as well as lizards, parrots, butterflies, and fish. Visitors take paths that lead under the conservatory's 35-foot (11m) waterfall and enjoy picnics on the grassy lawns.
