There variety of flowers and plants was fabulous. The butterfly garden and house were full of different butterflies! It was well worth the $7 entrance fee!

Our botanical garden where we live is new and will be a few years before it reaches the level this garden is at. They are adding to it and we enjoyed every bit of our visit here. Spent several hours here.

We are not botanic garden aficionados however, this is absolutely a must see. We are from Denver and have a great botanic garden, but this one really beat it.

Gardens that are changed throughout the year. Pleasant trail to follow. Went to an outside wedding here; good facilities. They have an entertaining christmas light show between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Nice gift shop. Music and drinks on Tuesday evenings until it gets too cold. Wednesday lectures and lunch.

Lovely and informative botanical displays. Also, musical performers. My wife and I caught Angela Hagenbach, the great bossa nova and jazz singer from Kansas City, at this venue years ago.

The annual lights exhibit in December is just breathtaking, and it's well-coordinated with the music. A great way to see the gardens in an unusual setting.

I love going here around Christmas and the volunteers who run this place are amazing people! This is a calming, serene place to have a nice stroll with the family.

Don't miss it at Christmas. It is spectacular. Beautiful lighting and water show. Walking paths are easy for wheelchair as well as families. Several fun food treat areas.
