  • The garden was beautiful. I heard from my tour guide that it host concerts and light shows. The garden is super peaceful; there were koi fishes in the moving pond. There are swing sets for couples. There are green archers tunnels. It's a great place to take wedding pictures :) The colors of the place are in shades and hues of red, green, pink, white, yellow, and brown. I would like to come back, sit on the swing sets, and read a book.
  • Beautiful public garden. Walking through Hopeland Gardens is viewing nature at it's best. While enjoying the variety of trees & plants notice the turtles, ducks, birds & butterflies along your journey.
  • Beautiful gardens and a peaceful place to walk and sit. I love that it is free to visit, and has interesting features, like fountains and a stage for shows and musicians. Parts of the park, however, could certainly use a little work to be cleaned up and put into good working order.
  • We are new to the area and have brought friends and family to these gardens. The grounds are well kept and Beautiful landscape along with some history on the local horse racing industry. Nice treat for the eyes and mind.
  • This is a gorgeous gardens with well-defined walking paths. It has the cutest turtles which are always swimming around! There are also Carp in the waters if that is your thing.
