I go to the gardens each year. I love to see what has been planted as far as type of flower and colors. The layout is beautiful and relaxing. This is a great early morning or Sunday afternoon walk.

What a fun thing to do--go through the trail garden and see the beauty of all these tests plants. It's quick, impromptu, beautiful and a great stop on a bike ride or walk.

Stop by for a stroll through some of the best blooms in town. On a sunny day, there are the colors of the rainbow in type sorted flower garden. Watch out for some muddy spots, but this is immaculately groomed for walking and observing. Take your camera, snap some wonderful flowers in a great setting. Parking right on the street... More

Pleasant diversion for 1/2 - 1 hr . Great dog park behind old high school as well. New museum (haven't been) too.

I went with my young granddaughter. We strolled around, pointed out flowers we liked, went back to our favorites, and had a lovely time. The flowers were beautiful, and it was fun to see the past award winners. Also, my granddaughter liked walking back and forth through the adjacent tunnel. A winner on a sunny afternoon!

An amazing display that you cannot miss, also check out the 400+ plantings at City Park Reservoir. The sheer extravagance of the flower display is good for multiple visits!!

My mom loves plants so this was a must see for us. We saw a bunch of different annuals and took lots of pics; looked to be a great green space for people to enjoy; some parking available (we went early) but imagine parking could be tricky.
