  • We enjoyed getting out for a good walk here. Our 2.5 year old girl loved the flowers and the outdoor section, not so much the inside due to the temperature but all in all a really good experience.

  • Big improvement for the better! Even though the original garden inside the dome was pretty neat back in the days.
  • Enjoyed a relaxing time with my fiancĂ©, Beautiful place
