  • Came here for the lights and wasn't disappointed. The bonsai were #awesome and the reflection pool area is not to be missed. Even though it was at night when we visited, there was enough light to see most of the garden, however a day time trip might be in my future. And this would be a great place to do a non-scary haunted house, just saying.
  • I love this place. The people are so wonderful. I'm having my wedding there in December and they treat me and Jacqueline like we are part of the family. Love it love it love it!
  • This is a nice place to to go to and walk along the the paths to various different plants. It can be very photogenic. We went through and December for the Christmas show work consisted of music and Christmas lights.
  • There's a couple of garden sections that are very beautiful and makes the whole experience totally worth it. Definitely save those for the end. That would be the Bonsai garden and the Reflections garden. I would advise you to wear comfy shoes and a bug spray for the visit.
  • A wonderful local garden that is maintained by volunteers from the community. An absolutely magnificent world-class bonsai tree collection. Very much worth the price of admission.
