  • Gorgeous botanical gardens to visit. The landscaping is impeccable. But it does depend on when you visit and the amount of flowering and lushness is heavily weather-dependent, just like any botanical gardens. I have visited this place on a couple of occasions both around the same time of the year. The first time it knocked my socks off. the second time, eh. Try to go when the sky is overcast, especially after a light rain. A bright sunny day will wash out all the colors and dull the greens.
  • Lot's of flowers as expected! The layout was a bit confusing here and there and the sign we're sometime missing. Overall still a great visit.
  • Beautiful garden! Totally worth a visit! I was very surprise how interesting the expositions were and how well organized the site is!
  • Super beau site xxxxx
  • Un excellent endroit à visiter. An excellent place to visit. The flowers and arragements are fantastic!
