We had a lovely time strolling through the gardens here. I wish I had brought a picnic lunch. We walked through every corner of the park and were delighted with the plantings and arrangements, even the area where wedding preparations were underway felt friendly and inviting.

I spent a leisurely morning alone, strolling through the gardens and snapping photos of the plants. It was peaceful, lovely morning. I especially enjoyed the vine garden, the wedding garden, and the areas around the ponds. I can't wait to go back!!

The botanical gardens was free and it was about 2 hours to walk the entire garden. Unfortunately there were minimal flowers in bloom but there was a nice outside butterfly garden. Parking was also free.
