A beautiful place to visit...but keep a eye out for their special attractions, e.g. Halloween or Christmas displays....grandchildren love them. Besides that, it a beautiful walk thru the gardens.

We loved visiting this place. Lots of paths to discover -- it's a lot bigger than I had imagined. Well laid out landscaping. A very nice excursion and well worth the visit.
