  • Great way to escape the New England Winter. Bring a lunch and you will feel miles away in the warm weather!
  • Beautiful and amazing. Visit soon. Inexpensive admission price, too.
  • Not the best collection of plants but a good getaway in the winter.
  • An amazing place to spend the afternoon. Very well maintained and had ample space for parking.
  • The botanical center is lovely, with a nice variety of flowers and other plants, and a koi pond. Some of the plants were turning yellow, though - it appeared as though they hadn't been watered in a few days.
