The gardens are not large, but a nice place to stroll for an hour or so. Fortunately, I wore long pants, so the mosquito bites were limited to my hands and arms. I probably got a half dozen or more bites within the first few minutes and spent the rest of the time scratching. The water features sport lovely aquatic... More

Exhibits are available to view for approximately two months. Nothing to dislike in this "rain forest" atmosphere of beautiful, attractive plants and trees. Admission is reasonable.

Very nice walking trails throughout the gardens. Palms, bamboo trees and lily ponds abound! Look for the unique sculpted whisper bench. Bring your camera!!

We had an enjoyable walk through this garden. Beginning May 1 until October 30, admission for adults and seniors is reduced by $2.00 and for children over 3, it's reduced $3.00. It's an 18 acre garden with a fair amount of shade. It's located on US 1.It evidently began as a much larger garden that was created in the 1930s.... More

Each year there is a themed exhibit. This year was The Lego creations set within the gardens. You never knew what you were going to see as you walked through the gardens, so there were many delightful surprises.
