  • 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.
  • At an overnight Brownie event. Exemplary.
  • 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
