Not to be overlooked very interesting presentations for it's size. We visited on a very warm and humid day in late June. Did some strolling early on, finished the visit by taking the tram to see the balance of this facility. If the opportunity presents itself, We would definitely visit it again in the spring or fall.

This garden is beautiful! There are so many roses to start the tour. Many nice places to sit. Gorgeous views. If you enjoy looking at flowers, I think you will enjoy this garden! You will do a lot of walking, but it is peaceful. I would recommend doing the membership if you think you will be back, as that will really increase the value. You can also use the membership at many other gardens. You can take a boat ride for $8 or $5 for members.i plan to do this next time. There is also a train like ride that will give you a tour. There is a display devoted to monarchs and helping to save them. There is a butterfly house. I would like to have seen more butterflies, but the few I did see where gorgeous. There is a kids area that has a water area and fun things for the kids. This isn't a high action thrill park, just go expecting to see beautiful flowers, enjoy a nice hike and reflect upon the beauty of nature!!

Our party of 4 spent many hours at this wonderful garden.
Something for everyone . We especially enjoyed the pontoon boat, giving a wonderful overview of the whole complex. The 'people train ' was a great free way to quickly make our way around the complex after spending several hours wandering in the heat . Lovely large trees also offer shade, and the shop is nicely stocked with many tempting goodies

Our family spent a day enjoying the plants, flowers, and installations in this wonderful place. Not many people, so I would say very underutilized. Wonderful children's area--something for everyone. If walking is hard, take the tram, but this is a great place to have a picnic, get a long walk, spend a day. There is also a sales room with many great gifts. Don't miss it.

This place has something for everyone, and the staff is friendly and knowledgable. There is a convenient tram that takes you to different areas of the park if you don't want to walk the distance. There is a beautiful and educational splash area for the kids on a hot day as well as a very fun butterfly maze and butterfly house. The gardens are breathtaking for the adults and my two little boys enjoyed the paths through them. The cafe is comfortable and a nice place to rest. We didn't take it but there's also a boat tour through the gardens. I would come back here again - we didn't see it all in the time we were there.
