  • I love this park! It is so beautiful and peaceful, and I love photographing there as well. It is never horribly crowded that I have noticed. The security there is pleasant. Make sure you check out the old fashioned school house!
  • Great place for pictures, no matter what time of year. Have evergreens and bridges for during the winter, and landscaped gardens for the rest of the year.
  • Great place to take the kids and let them run. No play structure but several water falls and an old school house
  • Very good place to go, lovely spot to hang out and bring people from out of town. Beware, though, it doesn't stay open until eight all the time. It lasts until sunset and fluctuates depending on the weather. Make sure you check the sunset schedules.
  • I wonderful botanical experience with winding paths, fish ponds and an old school house. Bring your lunch, spread a blanket, and enjoy.
