It's like stepping into another preserved world---especially love the water falls and all the fountains and the koi pond!

“Can you say flowers”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

I love this place. It's a great place to take Mom for Mother's day.
When the flowers are in bloom outside it's really pretty. I really like the exotic plants and the smell inside the building. There's a nominal fee to get in and they have a plant sale where a person can pick up some interesting plants.

Night lights at the Gardens is a magical experience! The Crystal Palace style domes are beautifully illuminated with the fire fly experience especially enchanting.
