  • The gardens are mostly rodos so of course summer is best, but it is a lovely walk. So take someone special and enjoy your day. This is free and very enjoyable 
  • Happy to take an early evening walk in the gardens. Interesting plants most labeled, Also nice to see the university campus

  • Wonderful rain forest gardens, with areas split up into different biomes. Great place to take pictures.
  • Beautiful little spot to walk around or sit and eat lunch. Good photo opportunities, fully fenced to help protect it.
  • Was there twice a couple of years ago. Very nice place. Would like to visit it again, just to see how the things are.
  • Used to be lots of mushrooms in this area, Violet cortinarius (non-edible) was my favorite. Also Russula emetica (poisonous) and orange lactarius (caution). Also found Shaggy Mane (edible) on the campus lawn. Also Agaricus campestris and A. arvensis, but be very careful with these, they are edible but are similar to the Genus Amanita, which includes deadly poisonous mushrooms such as Death Cap, Destroying Angel, and the intoxicating Amanita muscaria. When in doubt, when you cannot make a POSITIVE identification, just leave it.
  • A cultural treasure.
