  • If you just want to take a walk this is the Place. Only $30 to enter. Love her. Plus they change it up in different seasons also. Go in the Winter time or the Fall. Love them will always going back.
  • This place should be on everyone's to do list. Recommend going as soon as they open in summer so you can enjoy the park before the heat of the day. It's a most beautiful park. We will definitely be back.
  • This is a wonderful garden for both nature lovers and garden lovers alike. Wonderful paved and unpaved trails wind through the hillsides dotted with artistic architectural creations. Hotter than hell in July, but they had water fountains. Admission $15 but free with a reciprocal membership from other participating gardens or arboretums. Exceptional men's room. Clean, well-stocked and even decorated with a daffodil.
  • A beautiful spot. Definitely worth a visit. Make sure you allow enough time to take in all of the walks.
  • Beautiful gardens! There is a varying degree of difficulty in their winding paths which do have an incline. Hard for handicapped persons to traverse. There are wheelchairs, if needed.
