  • A very very beautiful botanical garden. So I'm used to Southern California botanical Gardens that are full of palm trees and cacti (well majority at least), and seeing this garden was so different and refreshing! Go and enjoy it's beauty!
  • I visited here once late 2015, and loved the lighting they did in the Garden. Had visited with friends and family and kids loved the area too. A must see lighting show. Parking is a pain, but they do have $5 parking available (gets full real quick).
  • This Botanical Garden is awesome. It is big with a large variety of plants, and at every plant group there is a plate you can tap your phone to and it loads the information for the plants in that group. I loved it.
  • A very nice botanical garden with lots of trails. Will visit again, but definitely not on a weekend. Was pretty busy with it being a Sunday and not exactly the peaceful walk I was looking for. I'll try again on a weekday.
  • Beautiful place to walk around. Trails are nicely kept. Gift shop and coffee shop. And we saw a tree frog! Fun!
