    Nice landscapes and quirky gift shop. the receptionist and grounds crew were all pleasant and friendly hearted. Located not to far from downtown lies the beautifully maintained garden offering wonderful architecture mixed with wildlife and unique ornaments. My time of visit was around Christmas and they offered a seasonal exhibit for kids and families. If you ask the gift shop to participate in a scavenger hunt you can keep the little ones busy while you have time to escape big city life and Take in the sights and sounds of nature. Enjoy.
