The gardens are a delight to wander. I take seasonal pictures there. The children's gardens are delightful, encourage play and learning. Very well done. Mother new Chinese garden will be amazing. Several different venues for weddings, parties, and quiet reflection.

Small, well conceived garden with extensive walkways and views. Not much information available along the walk other than placards naming each plant.
