I have been visiting these gardens for the past forty years going back to when Park and Tilford meant a Distillery not a strip mall. A recent tour of the garden was saddening. Unpruned bushes, no deadheading in the rose gardens, little evidence of attention to seasonal beds. Current management need to pull up their socks and unlock thie toolshed... More

The remnant of the large property that existed here in rural days before it all got turned into strip mall and light industrial buildings. How you feel about it will depend on whether you're a "glass half empty" or "glass half full" person: either it's great that even a small remnant of green space survives in an otherwise blighted area,...

Step into a tranquil and quiet space filled with the delights of Nature, beautiful plants and flowers. Sit awhile on a bench and take in the ambience. The Japanese Garden is delightful with a little pond, dragonflies and lily pads. Sit and relax in this quiet area. The garden is not that big, flat for walking, lots of benches to... More

This little gem is hidden between a strip mall and main street, and is much, much larger than you'd think. Quite spectacular in the late spring, it is available year-round for wandering in, free, and really is a hidden gem.

There is an oversized bust of George Kuhn, the CEO of the Park and Tilford Distillery Company who authorized and financed the original construction of the gardens. Let me start something silly here: I hereby decree good luck for all who stroke the bald head of the Kuhn bust will have good luck for the rest of the week. Now,... More

This garden is not overly large, nor exceptional, but it is FREE! The entrance is a bit hidden in the strip mall. We choice to buy a lunch and then quietly eat it in the Gardens. It is clean a cool paradise on a hot day. Clean restrooms.

I visit this often and its a lovely walk around. I just feel that during the Christmas period the display of lights is just too much and too dazzling to the extent that it makes me disorient. It's a really lovely display but too much for me!!

There is no admission fee and you can stroll among the different areas of the garden. There are quiet places to sit and relax but also some beautiful places to admire. I find it an oasis of beauty.
