  • Lovely treat to discover this beautiful spot. Gracious and welcoming staff. Well marked plants. Nice variety of specimens for sale to bring home.
  • Absolutely beautiful! I went last in the fall, and it was still breathtaking. And the front desk was polite, helpful, and knowledgeable
  • Our family walked around one gorgeous day and spent a very peaceful time among beautiful gardens. There's a pond, sculptures and gift shop.
  • Really pleasant way to spend a day. Tree labels could be a little bigger for those of us with vision issues. I recommend it.
  • Great paths through this nature area. No cost to enter, a wonderful calm small pound near the back was my personal favorite area. All through the park, birds and small animals could be seen on the sides of the paths. Most of the plants had small tags that told the name of the plant. A small store out front also sold small potted plants. (On a side note there were a TON of Pokemon Go Poke-stops and Gyms)
