You can't beat this awesome park! There are so many well kept flowers, trees, streams, etc. You can actually see fish, turtles, and other fun creatures in the water! There are plenty of benches, little play areas, etc. Not to mention, it's a great place for biking, pictures, and tons of other things.

This is a beautiful place. Lots of open spaces, beautiful gardens, and equipment for children to play on. We reserved a room at the Botanical Garden building and had a wonderful family reunion.

If flowers and gardening is your thing, you would love this place. If you like walking in a peaceful park, this is a great place. We didn't spend a ton of time here, but you could easily walk around for several hours.

I accompanied my husband to a convention so explored some on my own. These are lovely gardens. It is set up wth sub gardens. Some of them are maintained by different garden clubs and some just have themes like wildflowers, redbuds. There is a lovely Japanese strolling garden.
