  • We go here all the time as a family to go for a walk or to have the kids play. Its super pet friendly as well as plenty of wide open areas to fly kites.  more »
  • Having arrived a few days after a killing frost, there were not many surviving blooms, but I could see from the beds and layout that the park will be beautiful in season. Still, I walked the grounds.....  more »

  • By far, the most beautiful park in the area. So much to offer for people of all ages. Miles of walking trails with numerous playgrounds along the way. The gardens are beautiful. The hosta garden is my favorite. My kids love the butterfly house. Live butterflies everywhere. Sometimes landing on them. It's also very educational. Best part is that it's totally free!!!! Donations are accepted. The Japanese stroll garden has a very small fee to get into it but very worth it. I highly recommend this park for gatherings, weddings, picnics, hiking or just getting out for fresh air.
  • We're so glad we visited. The Japanese garden had a surprise around every corner. The people working there were very nice and the gardens are well maintained. The kids especially loved the butterfly house. One could walk this place every day for a week and find something each time.
  • This botanical garden is massive and beautiful. They also have a butterfly house. My family loved it. There are also play areas for children.
  • We love to go at different times to see the stages of growth and different blooms. So many varieties. The park has enough space to run with kids and the walking path around the lake has a few play places for kids too. The butterfly house staff share great info about what is there.
  • Spent three hours exploring with my dogs after an agility trial. Beautiful place, well worth the time! Spend the four dollars on the Japanese garden. Only thing I'd improve is have either places to buy water, or drinking fountains. It's a big place and drinking water is sparse.
