  • It would be indecent to miss out on a wonderful place. After taking the train, beautifully restored by a handful of fans, you get to the heart of the garden. Everything has been designed with precision, everything is beautiful and so exotic plants by the diversity and the various proposed areas. It is absolutely beautiful and the back with the little train inexorably immerses you in another universe.

  • Beautiful gardens but the lotus extravaganza is the main attraction, especially this time of year (early to mid July) at the peak of flowering!
  • An amazing garden, so interesting and beautiful. Must see if you are in the area.
  • A great day trip for kids and adults! Various well maintained gardens as well as goats, ducks, fish and llamas. We brought in a few loaves of bread to feed the animals. There are lots of areas for picnicking. We took advantage of the picnic tables out front and brought our own lunch.
  • Beautiful gardens. Well worth the visit.
  • Very good gardens.
