  • Very awesome place to visit. You can tell they put there heart and soul into the gardens here. Definitely a great destination whether your flying solo or with the family. They have plenty of area on the grounds to stop and have a picnic. They also offer military and student discount. If I'm ever in the area again I'll definitely be making a return visit.
  • There is a lot to see here! Plan for half a day at least and bring a lunch if you don't want to buy food at the guest center. It has definitely grown from the last time I was here. Looking forward to coming back. I am actually considering getting a membership!
  • Wow! the new construction looks great! This is a great place for kids, and there are lots of things to do here. Many walking trails that have great plants to look at.
  • The Gardens are beautiful and a fun place to attend with friends, family, and kids. Continues to grow and update. Great venue for a company picnic.
  • It was free admission on Mother's Day and the perfect day to go. I had a great time for my first Mother's Day ever! Also, dinosaurs. Lol
