  • The flowers were not in full blossom when I was there. Only a few flowers to see. The weather was hot so the place wasn't teeming with tourists either.  more »

  • We went at the end of April. I would say the place as great potential with an amazing diversity of plants. Human-made facilities are well incorporated and harmonized into the natural environment. I would strongly recommend this place during summer and perhaps during fall, but not much during winter or spring. At the time we went, very few plants were actually flowering. Still, it was a nice and relaxing experience.
  • Excellent canopy walk. A little thrilling but view is gorgeous!
  • Love checking out the Gardens several times a year to see the changing display of blossoms. Beautiful!
  • Beautiful place! Tree walk was loads of fun! Didn't see any of the trees in bloom cause it was too late in the season but the grounds were still so beautiful and so much to see. Love that there is a washroom and lots of areas to explore. Will go again
  • Definitely worth a visit if you're on campus. A beautiful sanctuary that is a great spot to sit and relax. Wish we could have participated in a tea ceremony while visiting!
