  • Went here for my first time 3 weeks ago. Want to go back; nice to go to on a rainy day and walk the gardens. Beautiful artwork and everyone is very friendly!! Great cafe aswell.
  • Stunning place, well managed, amazing non profit organization with great educational programs. We make a point of visiting this tranquil west coast paradise every time we are in town.
  • Lucky enough to be there for laternfest! Kids had a lot of fun but it is generally for younger ones. Friendly staff and great vibe.
