Spectacular! Stunning! Joyful! We were desperate to see autumn colours and Forest Glade Gardens did not disappoint, despite the dry year and late cold temps. Worth every cent of the $10 admission fee. Definitely need 1.5 hours minimum to engage within this magical place.

I loved everything about this garden, which was stunning in spring with bluebells, rhododendrons, alazeas, and others. If we had visited earlier we could see the wisterias in full bloom. My friends visited it in autumn and it was glorious as well. It didn’t have...More

Forest Glade doesn’t have an on-site toilet and no areas for kids, so Tieve Tara may be more child-friendly
