  • 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.
  • Beautiful garden! Totally worth a visit! I was very surprise how interesting the expositions were and how well organized the site is!
  • Un excellent endroit à visiter. An excellent place to visit. The flowers and arragements are fantastic!
  • Neat place to wander around to view interesting exhibits
  • Beautiful gardens, lots of flowers, very peaceful and relaxing.
