Love the need to preserve nature but the bats are a turn off. Move them on or alert visitors. Loved the flower pavillion.

We saw the most amazingly beautiful birds in the Garden's aviary. Some of the birds we had not seen before and we thoroughly enjoyed a leisurely viewing of these gorgeous bids.

I'm glad I stopped in here as I found an amazing aviary tuckered away with a superb collection of parrots from around the region and other distant states that are not common to see in nature.
