  • Excellent garden with an aviary, butterfly museum, orchid collection, pine forest, bamboo collection, view tower, and really neat petrified wood collection as well as beautiful swan ponds and well...  more »
  • January/februar is not the best time of year to visit the park. I enjoyed the Orchids and the view from the tower. The white and black swans were beautiful.  more »
  • One of the highlights of our visit. We enjoyed the opportunity to meet some local families and also observe a large group of college students dancing in one of the meadows.  more »
