  • It's safe for families to go take pictures of scenery. Kids can learn about herbs and odd plants very romantic ☺ for couples to walk or just plain reading a book relaxed. If its action you want there is a park across the street
  • Great for scenery. Great for hiking, Great for family day out. There are always lots of photographers here ready for work. It's very pretty . Bring your walking shoes and some water because it is very big. Mosquito repellent would be great. There used to be a cat here that would follow us around. Have not seen hm my last few visits. It is a nice place to have an outing.
  • Clean and lots of room to meander around the gardens. The plants are in nearly perfect condition due to hard work and dedication of the people who love plants. It's a very easy to navigate and see everything in a few hours. Go see this place if you are there.
  • This place is amazing to go see. I have zero complains about the facility it self. My complain is about the staff. Specially the lady who picks up the phone for reservations. She has no manners when it comes to costumer service, she does not make you feel welcome what so ever, very rude. I tried talking to them about my proposal to see if they could help me out with something, or add a little something to make it extra special and she pretty much told me to go look for another place. Too bad they don't make you feel welcome which is way I'm giving this review 1 star.
  • Very worth a visit at any time of the Year! Love the turtle pond with the bamboo forest.
