Overview

Known for its massive annual plantings and bronze sculpture, this 7.5-acre garden is a popular and relaxing retreat. A Wedding Gazebo adds an air of elegance, a man-made re-circulating stream provides texture, movement and sound, and a Sensory Garden engages visitors in an interactive landscape experience. A variety of sculpture placed throughout the garden provides artistic and historic interest. The garden is open year-round from sunrise to sunset. Admission is free.

There are some pretty flowers and okay landscaping, but also a lot of dogs to navigate. No way would I ever go out of my way to see this ever again.

I don't believe you can rent a wheelchair but it is accessible, most of the path's are paved and there are no steps that I'm aware of that doesn't also have a ramp.
