  • my sister was told that she couldnt take her bridal pictures and was sent to the back of the whole garden where no one could see us. The whole back was just poo, the flowers were all dead, grass wasnt even cut ugh my sister was going to have a meltdown. It just shows how people treat others
  • I had a very peaceful experience! Great place for anyone that loves nature! More than enough to simply enjoy!!
