    For personal or family visiting, it has many interesting plants, flowers and trees, and several other things of interest. I don't live near here. I was here for a relative's celebration of their anniversary, done at this Botanical Center. There were 40-60 people at this event (I don't know what their people limit is). The staff here did a great job. It was extremely nice.

    Pretty grounds outside and the indoor garden is quite nice. 90 minutes and you're done.

    Hands down the best Botanical Center this side of the Mississippi. Friendly staff, well kept grounds, and overall a truly magical experience. Who knew places like this were so accessible. I often take my son, Marc, to look at the fish and learn about new plants. Great way to spend the weekend.

    Neat place to take the kids every once in a while. Really neat water features. These include the indoor koy ponds, and the outside man made creek. Check the website for special activities. That is usually when we take the kids
