Eventually spanning 11 acres, the garden currently includes the Michel Family Children's Garden, the Heritage Garden, Rain Garden, Gateway Plaza & Icon, the Great Lawn, and a Visitor Center. The garden is open year-round from sunrise to sunset. Admission is free.

We drove past it and turned around and went in. The gardens aren't that big but they are so much fun. You enter at the Children's Garden. They have a walled pond (drained when we were there), water sculptures, a maze, a butterfly garden with giant butterflies that the sun shines through, etc. One of my favorite things was the walkway with colored circles. The sun shines through the circles and casts colorful round circles on things. It covers 11 acres and is opened year-round from sunrise to sunset and it's free. Kids young and old will love this little place.
