  • Fantastic well kept gardens, great for a picnic or just a nice walk through the area. Well labeled and displayed flowers and some great water features and beautiful fish.
  • The gardens are stunningly beautiful and extremely well tended! The paths are nice and go throughout the whole park. The jazz series we saw sounded terrific outside from the gazebo!
  • Beautiful little park with huge trees, a plethora of flowers and plants. Plenty of benches to stop and take it all in. Lot's of shade on a hot day.
  • This is a beautiful place. This is a good place to lose yourself for a while amongst the plants and flowers.
  • Beautiful park with many small trails and lovely small quiet nooks filled with statuary. A restored one room school house is fun for kids to visit. Gazebo stage hosts free summer concerts on Sunday nights. Bring a lawn chair
