  • This is a nice park to visit. It's very well maintained. We enjoyed the trails. Our son loved the water fountains It open to the public and free 
  • My husband and I have been here several times. The gardens are lovely. There are many types of flowers and trees. Late spring, flowers in full bloom, beautiful! 
  • Tip - call before you go. We tried to go months ago - checked the web site, which said it was open, travelled for a hour to get there and it was closed due to the rain. When we did call to check yeste...  read more »
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful and peaceful. They are always making improvements and upgrades. They did an amazing job recovering from the major floods we had in the area. Great place for pictures or a peaceful stroll.
  • If you're in the neighborhood and like to stroll through gardens and plants I definitely suggest you stop by here setting as the price of admission is free. Just watch out for the snakes though. It's not the best botanical garden I've been to but I'm not gonna complain a free entry.
