Stopped in last week to take advantage of their half off plant sale and I was blown away! The flowers are stunning, the best I have seen there. The newer handicapped garden is awesome! We forget this little gem is in our backyard!

This park is great for a casual stroll among the flowers, feeding ducks, and letting the kids run free. There is a large playground area for the kids and also a beautiful rose garden area which has a huge variety to admire.
