  • 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
  • Very nice place to take a little time and relax. The garden area is a great place to walk through and enjoy nature at it's pinnacle.
  • This is a nice little spot, almost hidden. I don't think enough people know about this place. But it is beautiful and a really nice place for kids. I think the new little water features will be excellent for kids this summer. Great little gem.
  • Came for a USO event. Very nice and relaxing place to spend a Saturday. I highly encourage a visit.
