This may not be the largest botanical garden but it's absolutely lovely and offers a lot of variety for its size with everything from a Japanese garden to a small working farm with an adobe homestead and farm animals. The rainforest and desert domes are...More

Plan to spend the day. The train was down so we drove between the parks all three were interesting and educational. We especially loved the Botanic Garden and Bug-arium and Aquarium.

We spent about 4 hours walking through the gardens and then went through the aquarium. We had a great time exploring all the different areas.

Take your time & walk through the trails- what a beautiful park with diverse garden spaces, a must do especially if you have kids, or enjoy the outdoors.

There is a variety of plants, and there are several lakes. A big disappointment was the lack of places to sit and enjoy the area.
