  • Absolutely gorgeous park. Very well kept. A safe place for all ages. Beautiful flowers, water fountains and a large bell tower that chimes a tune. I adore this park!
  • Very pretty! Bring your camera! Not a huge botanical garden, but definitely worth the time to stop and see. Easy and smooth walking paths around the entire area, as well as some bike paths going around the garden and through the park. Make sure you go early enough to visit the greenhouse at the center of the gardens - it closes in the early evening.
  • Nice indoor green house with adjacent room that hosts events and gallery's. Great outdoor gardens that are kept well and very peaceful
  • Like stepping into a jungle in there. Temperature controlled and insect controlled by local birds. But only a small piece of an impressive park.
  • Had a great time walking in the park for exercise.
