  • A lovely wander through informal woodland gardens. I had my elderly mum with me and she struggled with the paths. Signposts were not clear though a handy little nap had been provided.  more »

  • Nice gardens and butterfly house. Nice low key outing for oldies and kids. Some paths out the back are a bit steep and probably not suitable for prams but the rest is fine.
  • Sweet little place to take the children. Applause to volunteers for the upkeep. Be cool if a coffee cart was available 😊
  • Gardens aren't my thing but my wife and 2 year old enjoyed it. However the butterfly house it self was full of monarch butterflies and caterpillars. At only $3 it is a bargain and a great way to occupy 30-60mins.
  • A calm and beautiful place to walk through walk ways... Great to roam with a little one to explore and see the butterflies... We didn't see many of them today... The drinkable water fountain was out... Don't forget to get your water bottles and the mosquito repellent with you...
  • Beautiful wee local garden run by volunteers. $3 entry. Great value considering high cost of other places!!! Lots of nooks and crannies to explore plus the monarch butterfly house is gorgeous.
