  • This is the most awesome beautiful place I've been to in a while. The people were off-the-charts friendly the grounds were just beautiful. I went for the Halloween festivals great great Family Affair recommend it to anybody of all ages.
  • A lesser-known site outside of Louisville. This is a truly special place. Be sure to thank the wonderful people who work there. You will remember your visit and experience.
  • 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.
  • Pleasant morning stroll through the gardens for the first time. A great deal of variety all well kept.
  • Amazing and magical place. The tour is worth it to fully understand!
