I infrequently visit here but have been going for a number of years. It is a nice, peaceful change of pace.

Just want to escape into the nice quiet country. Well this is a spot right in the middle of town. Beautifully maintained gardens interesting walk nice people to talk to and beautiful quiet surroundings.

Such a tranquil place. Very interesting plants and fruits. Things I've never thought I'd witness growing before. Great place for family to just take a nice walk and enjoy the great outdoors. Lots of nice fish and salamanders to see too.

The flower and fauna are a good representation of what does well in our area. Gardens are a special place to enjoy the beauty of nature. I enjoyed my stroll through this lovely garden
