  • The botanical garden is very nice but all activities are quite pricey which puts the activities out of the range of a large part of the community.

  • Another great day at the Botanical Gardens! Today we had a delicious lunch at the garden caffe! They have a great assortment of sandwiches and even a gluten free sandwich bread!!! We will do this again, on a Wednesday an d hit the children's garden for Wacky Wednesday activities!
  • Really one the best botanical gardens I have visited! Large and varied garden displays with many unique presentations of the native and non-native plants. Very good for families and kids of all ages. Definitely worth a visit!
  • I have been to many botanical gardens and this by far has been one of my favorites. There is so much to see and do. It is also pet friendly. I highly recommend going here.
  • The garden is a great place to visit throughout the year. In the summer there's the butterfly house. In the winter they have a fantastic light display. Membership is definitely worth the money!
