The new Chinese garden is beautiful and relaxing. Enjoyed our visit. My husband loved the new gong and bonged it. So serene and peaceful except for the gong. LOL

I took my Mom here in April of 2015. I got to say, not at all what I thought it would be. Very little flowers around, not much to see or do. Even the map they gave us they asked that we bring it back when we were done!! The little kid area was probably the best thing at the... More

So disappointed with Botanica. They have chosen to ignore repeated phone calls about booking a wedding with them. If they were unable to accommodate the specifics of my wedding, I would understand, but simply ignoring me because I won't have 500 people (therefore spending thousands of dollars) is just rude. Needless to say, I will not be recommending anyone patron... More

This is a wonderful place to visit; especially if you have children. We come from a city with a botanical garden under a dome, and we were very impressed by how large this one is. There are a lot of interactive activities for children to do and play "with and on". The gardens are beautiful and landscaped well.

Awesome every time. Butterfly's, lush gardens, water lilies. Wonderful array of flowers. Quiet and peaceful walking paths. What's not to like.

Enjoy the plantings and landscape design all year including lighting during Christmas season. The facility can be good for sizable group meetings indoors and outdoors such as weddings and class reunions. The last time I visited was to an Asian food and dance event with three of my family members participating in a Taekwondo demonstration including board breaking.

They always have something in season for all ages to view and places to sit and think if you want to do that. They can host your private parties, ceremonies or wedding pictures. It is really a hidden gem in the city. The kids love the butterfly room when in season or seeing and feeding the fish, but there are... More

Although it was a very hot and humid day we really enjoyed walking through all of the different gardens. The new Chinese Friendship garden is lovely. My teen kids still enjoy going to the children's area and playing the various musical instruments and going through the tree house. You have to stop by the butterfly house and if you sit... More

We were in town to attend a wedding in this garden, and were so happy to have the opportunity to wander around. It is beautiful! Be sure to see the butterfly garden!
