  • This was far from a place, I would call a Botanical Garden. The grounds were run down and more weeds than plants. Very Very disappointed. Wasted 2 hour driving. Would NOT recommend.
  • Lots to do and see. There are many opportunities for kids of all ages to learn, with Naturalists available to answer questions, and teach about the plants and wildlife. On a sunny day, this is the perfect way to spend it outside, enjoying a bit of nature!
  • Love the walks and peace and quiet. Truly an oasis. The programs and people are great. Loved going growing up, it's even better as an adult.
  • Wonderful place to observe the change of seasons. Much to see---allow at least 2 to 3 hours when you go. Also has a nice cafe that serves lunch.
  • Amazing and beautiful place! If you like nature you will not regret visiting here!
