Very impressive botanical garden. Well-designed for both the casual walker and the experienced plantsperson. Lots of neat trails to explore. Labeling all in ship-shape order and grounds immaculate with interesting plantings. Wish this were closer to me - what a great free addition to the community!

Very nice place to visit to clear your head, and see some beautiful, colorful plants. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Didn't like the long walk from the parking lot.

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.

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.

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!
