  • I loved the Gardens! A lot of color even in the fall. So much to see. Accessible to all with the paved paths to walk or wheel. Such a great experience and a breathtaking getaway for ony $10.00...  more »
  • We expected to spend about an hour or so here, but wound up exploring for more than three. We visited in late summer but there were still tons of different plants in full flower. We lost count of the....  more »

  • Lovely and peaceful way to spend the day! The gardens are well thought out with lovely unexpected waterfalls and benches to sit and really soak in the natural beauty around you. The rose garden was inspirational. The scent of the roses was amazing. The employee kept garden with the personal touch of scarecrows outfitted by the employee families was a delight to behold. The bubbles table and the shooting water fountain was delightful and playful in the space as well. We went specifically for the origami display but was enchanted by the overall gardens. It is a photographers' and artists' dream area! I would love to go back and try my had at capturing some of the tranquil scenes in watercolor. The gentle rolling paths are well maintained and it was nicely wheelchair accessible for my Mom as well. I was concerned that she would encounter uneven terrain which would make it difficult for her to enjoy, but that is not was what we found at all. We will be coming back again as we were not able to walk the whole grounds and also to experience different seasons. Looking forward to seeing it again in the fall.
  • Wonderful experience for the whole family. Beautiful displays of flowers, trees and shrubs. The playground was amazing for the children. The snack bar was well stocked with healthy foods. The entire grounds were well maintained and immaculately. All staff were helpful and pleasant.
