  • Although we toured the Gardens a little late in the season, the grounds were still very pretty. The inexpensive entrance fee is a great value. Many different plantings, all well labeled. If you want to know what a bush is, the name's right there. Interesting layout, and you don't have to keep on the path. Was with two older family members, and we were able to arrange for a guided golf cart tour for them. The guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. Very good place for photographers.
  • Beautiful facility. We attended for a wedding. Nice addition to the city of Brookings.
  • Beautifully curated gardens. Great place to host either an indoor or outdoor event!
  • Different bt not too intresting
  • A great way to spend an hour or two on a nice afternoon or early evening.
