Flowers and waterfall were a beautiful sight to behold. Just chilled and took pictures. It was also close to the zoo.

Such a nice relaxing spot in the center of town! The garden provides tons of photo opportunities as well as just wandering and enjoying the many beautiful views. I love the fountain, and the variety of flowers is great.

The Sunken Gardens have always been one of those staples in the summer time. Beautiful place to get married, take senior pictures or just read a book. They have such a wonder rotation of blooms throughout the summer and being a plant love myself I love the variety of plants.
