  • Cute little botanical gardens. We were there for the Market on Moss Fall version, so we didn't see the gardens in all their glory, but it looked like a nice place to walk around.
  • This is a donation based public entity. The gardens are very well maintained. Take a tour no matter the weather, inside is a very interesting green house, outside the gardens are full of winding paths.
  • Luthy Botanical Garden is so great anytime of the year but right now its amazing. I wait for the #12 bus right in front of the garden its always so beautiful!!! I always see humming birds going from flower to flower. Its amazing (and that's just from the outside)!!! Only $2 to get in its a bargain....

  • Small but nice
