  • Beautiful collection of different garden types. Educational signs plus whimsical statues and other elements. On the Ice Age Trail and near other parks and golf. Nice events throughout the year. Great holiday light display in December.
  • Beautiful place to visit. So many different varieties of plants. Such clean fresh air. It smells so good with all of the plants surrounding you. Like a little Oasis.
  • Beautiful gardens, so many styles including a small home garden representing different countries. Loved the paths by the lake and the sunken garden was so breezy and relaxing when I went. Stonework was also amazing.
  • It was beautiful. We spent almost 2 hours there walking around and we didn't even see everything thoroughly! So you could spend a while there. I think it's a great couple destination. They seemed to have activities for children as well so it's for all ages. They do have uneven steps in some areas so you gotta watch your step and a couple spots are not wheelchair accessible but still plenty of spots that are. Beautiful place for pictures. Overall a wonderful experience. Definitely planning on going back.
  • Beautiful, well kept garden a little for everyone in the family. There's a storybook garden for the young and the old. The trail around the pond is just perfect for a hot summer day. The gardens around the world was educational. Great field trip!
