  • Breathtakingly beautiful even though it wasn't the big foliage season. I went with a friend and we walked through very leisurely because I'm a little disabled but it was a very easy to get from one place to sit to the next place without becoming fatigued. I brought my dog and he absolutely loved it he just thought he was in heaven so yes I would very much recommend this place but if you have any difficulty walking really I would recommend a wheelchair or cane. The only difficulty we had was signage- phone and web said no entrance fee when we got there there was a sign saying there was a fee. So we went up to the building to see about paying fee and no one was there but the park was open. So it was a little confusing but we went in and enjoyed it anyway. The other signs we had problems with were at the displays sometimes it was a little stingy I think would be really great if the signs were more detailed. And someone would maybe keep up with making sure the signs are in the right place and that the wording is still visible. Otherwise it's a great place and we had a great time thank you very much for all the volunteer work.
  • Beautiful place. The Christmas routine is nice. The scavenger hunt is a little hokie, but the kids love it. We have a lock on the Love Gate, so we enjoy the visit.
  • A nice garden. We had a great walk. Even in Winter it was worth the visit.
  • Beautiful grounds. Lots of information and different areas. Nice paths. Koi. Educational area, wetland, tropical.
