Love this place. We just enjoyed their pumpkin hunt. It is fun to be outdoors walking through a beautiful garden with a purpose. My niece and son love running and looking for the pumpkins.
It's a great area to walk and explore with numerous benches throughout where you can stop and relax. Quite often you will find that there is a unique art installation to discover throughout the grounds. I love it but I'm a local. It's not as lush as many botanic gardens. They take water restrictions very seriously.
BEAUTIFUL PLACE. I ve learned and grew so much from this secret garden! every 3rd tuesday is free so enjoy your days and be free in nature :p get lost and take different paths every time
While there is generally some part that is under renovation at any time, they have some nice interesting parts, for example the fig tree forest. There are lots of benches all over and plenty of clean trails for a long walk in a pleasant atmosphere. It's also very good for kids with a special children's garden and a on CE relaxing koi pond.
great place to explore its a huge 87 acres and the staff are so friendly they were a wealth of information and indulged all the questions we had
