We didn't have much time to spend at the garden, so we just saw the butterfly exhibit. But we couldn't help noticing as we drove in that the grounds were gorgeous. There were human figures "sculpted" out of plants—or more precisely, grown out of plants rather like "chia pets". I wish we could have spent more time there. Maybe next... More

One might visit here to see the beauty of the grounds but there is so much more to this place than the flowers. Please take time to eat at the Café as it is just delightful! Also, the new Butterfly Garden is so cool.

The pumpkin walk towards the end of October is very cool. About 3,000 pumpkins carved and spread around the gardens lit up for a nighttime walk.

From the spring flowers to the butterfly room and finally to the "Grande Grouille", the botanical garden is amazing. A great family activity. Staff is very friendly and the admission fee is reasonable. A great exhibition of nature. Highly recommended!

Even though I usually don't like flowers, I have to say that I was was impressed by everything being displayed in the gardens. It is a great place to visit either alone or in family/groups.

A nice garden with creative flower monuments. It was very relaxing to walk thru the trails. Nicely manicure and garden nicely presented. We met a very talented sculptor. We recommend this visit to people visiting the area.

The food is tasty, fresh and health oriented. It is good for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The patio is superb and the view over the garden is outstanding. The bad news is that it is opened only in the summer and for lunch (a short period of a few weeks for dinner, too).
