“Beautiful park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Wonderful way to spend some time in Davenport. The park is absolutely beautiful with well maintained flower beds, lovely trees, fountains, pathways, benches, and large grassy areas. Small gift shop with some interesting things that I bought for my granddaughter. There is a fee for the enclosed botanical conservatory, but the rest of the park is free.

I love this place. The rose garden is beautiful when in bloom, I got married there a few years back. The pond is nice and the whole park makes for great pictures. My family also has a bench there in honor of my great grandmother. My great aunt DeEtta helped make that park what it is today.

“Garden oasis in Davenport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

We were here on a really hot day, so we probably did not spend as much time here as we would have if say, it was only 80 degrees. Beautifully planned and cared for botanical garden, pretty fish pond! Small gift shop,too!
