  • The garden is very big and many different areas to walk through. We loved seeing the Japanese Garden and also visited the restaurant they have there. I would give this place 5 stars if the restaurant was a restaurant. The place is more like a cafeteria and the line was very long. Tables weren't cleaned as quickly as they should have been. Also would be nice if there were more benches throughout the garden. Overall, we enjoyed the areas we saw.
  • Very beautiful garden. I was here twice and in my first visit I was able to see all the beautiful park. Right now (May 2017) the Japanese garden is closed and in my personal opinion that was one of the most beautiful expositions. Save your money on pricey entry tickets now and go there once the Japanese garden is open again.
  • Beautiful gardens with highly educational aspects sewn in seamlessly amongst the walking paths. From loosing the kids for a good run around while secretly filling their heads with information to a romantic stroll through a lush, fragrant landscape at sunset to arrive at the inspiring lantern festival will ensure those around you will seek out your future adventures.
  • I enjoyed my time there. Most staff was pleasant and helpful. Lots of interesting programming. The restaurant had varied. high quality, delicious healthy options.
  • I liked the Insectarium (separate ticket) & the little Japanese Bonsai Garden. The pics that you see online are deceiving. The super good looking structures made of grass and flowers were apparently a special display in 2013 ( as told to me by the ticket sales guy). I had visited the garden hoping to see that but it was just okay without the lavish displays.
