“My favorite place to go on a beautiful day”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

Just an amazing place to go, the indoor display is beautiful, outdoors is just as enjoyable.
Its truly a pleasure to visit, I try to go 4-5 times a year. Bring your best camera.

“understated natural elegance”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

Stroll, run, love, date - it is a great place to find yourself and just BE. It is very quiet and understated. Be sure to see Susan Carlton Smith's work in the center.

“Took pictures”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

My husband and I only toured the welcome center but it was gorgeous! We took well over 100 pictures of the different plants and flowers. Would like to go again when it cools down!

“Serene Place!”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Even though we went there when Fall has started so it was not blooming time of the year. But still, I loved the lay out of this garden. It was so peaceful and serene just to walk with your loved ones. Photographers will love to be there!
