  • I love coming here. So beautiful, serene and awesome. Hat's off to the all the staff and resources that contribute to this magnificent resource and upkeep of flora in the middle of the concrete jungle. I find that it's best to come right when they open up, before the crowds so that the experience can be maximized.
  • What an amazing experience! make sure you visit with enough time to check every garden, because each of them is different, unique and interesting. The aromatic plants are amazing, as well as the Shakespeare garden and the Japanese pond. Will definitely come back next season to see the flowers bloom.
  • This place is amazing regardless of what season it is. The trees and plants are amazing along with the exhibits that display them. Great place to clear your mind along with taking family, friends and dates.
  • Beautiful and well kept any time of year! Discovery garden is so much fun for kids. My 3yrs old asks to come here every week
  • Great for relaxing on a Sunday afternoon. Also be on the lookout for the Cherry Blossom festival, it is their biggest event of the year. But a visit is worth it anytime of the year.
