This place is amazing. Alleged to be in the top 5 gardens, the number of famous sculptors with work attentively placed in the gorgeous setting is not to be match in the US. The staff is over the top helpful plus the volunteers give the gardens the additional perspective. Their pride and enthusiasm is surely contagious. This is a 10... More

I have been to the Garden at the time the butterfly exhibit was open. If you have not done that yet, you're missing out. Even if you visit during the regular season, you're in for a huge surprise when you see all of the breathtaking plants. Absolutely gorgeous

Went to Gardens on first day of Art Prize 2014. Gardens were decorated for fall. Millions of mums inside and out. Impressive displays of sculptures—and not just for Art Prize. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. From manicured gardens to fields of wild flowers. The staff are patient, friendly and helpful. There is a tram that runs thru the park for... More

We visited the gardens when they held their Chrysanthemums and More! exhibit. The mums and accompanying pumpkins and gourds were very beautiful. Sculptures are scattered throughout the gardens. The different greenhouses were fascinating. If you have even a slight interest in the arts or plants, this place is a must-see.

Went to the Gardens for the first time. The gardens were beautiful and we were really impressed. We took a tram tour of the Sculpture Garden and walked around the other exhibits. The prices were reasonable. I would recommed this to anyone who happens to be in the area.

My wife and I went to the gardens for the first time yesterday while on a mini vacation. There are numerous gardens and statues every where. The place is beautiful and something not to be missed. The gardens are both inside and out side as are the sculptures.

We were in town visiting my son at college. I took my brother, father, 20 year old son and his girlfriend to see the butterfly exhibit. It turns out she was terrified of butterflies, but we still had a good time. They do not have the range and caliber of gardens as the Chicago Botanical Gardens, yet, but the outdoor... More

We enjoyed walking around and looking at all of the sculptures, especially the Da Vinci horse. The gardens were beautiful as well, although perhaps they would be better in summer.

We arrived at the gardens as they opened at 9am on a weekday, which turned out to be great as we barely saw another person as we walked around outside. We were able to stroll in peace around the large and beautiful gardens, which had a great combination of long vistas and cosy little hedged areas. While we are more... More
