  • Incredible variety of plants. Hiking trails were nice too. People seemed to use it a lot for photo ops but it is just nice to go there and walk around. Worth the trip from inside the loop.
  • Loved walking through the beautiful gardens. They had a great scavenger hunt for the kids. It was nice having a good learning activity that didn't cost any money.
  • I really love this park went with my little dog and hubby we had a really nice day. Just be careful if you go with you're baby or little dog because wild animals run freely .
  • What a beautiful find...just miles from airport and my hotel. A tranquil jewel; a real antidote to the hustle bustle of the area.
  • Great place to take the kids and either walk the trails and observe some wildlife, view the beautiful flowers and landscape, or play in the playgrounds. It has a lot of picnic tables (concrete) and grills so you can have picnics. There are 2-3 large covered picnic tables. Bathrooms and water fountains are easily accessible and are located in multiple locations. The playground is busy with kids playing, but the trails remain quiet and peaceful. Great place.
