  • Lovely, free, browse at your leisure garden. Great for kids- there's herbs, edibles, and more. They are welcome to touch/smell, etc. A nice, super shady arbor/tunnel runs along one side of the garden- great for a packed lunch, an easy stroll to Beebe lake should you want to walk around the lake. Majority of the garden has direct sunlight and no shade-bring a hat/shades/etc. Restrooms in the visitor center. Gift shop too. Out door patio seating also there. It's a drive to get to the lily ponds. Free parking.
  • Great place to walk first hour free parking. Check out Bebe lake and the nearby waterfall.
  • Beautiful, Cornell does a fabulous job at keeping the grounds tamed so there are many easy paths and gorgeous routes to take.
  • Nice place to be near nature. fresh air.
  • Beautiful gardens with lots of vivd colors and textures.
