Friendly and beautiful!

Very pretty gardens even in November. A calming environment, perfect for putting perspective on life. Sculptures are everywhere.

the gardens are I' am sure beautiful when in bloom even more so they are expansive and really nice place to walk around a little disappointed at all the artist village shops closed would have been nice to see them doing there work but like that its not commercialized by having food cafes there just lovely and serene

The garden is small but has a number of featured plant collections and sections. It's also completely free to visitors. I visited this time for the modest dahlia bed. It's the size that's modest. Dahlias are nothing if not showy and they did not disappoint. I grow them on a much smaller scale and I learn a lot more seeing... More

We visited the Gardens September 10th, and parking was broke up into small section and small. We found the grounds to be overwhelming, since it required a large amount of walking and being senior citizens it was too much. We did not walk the grounds. No one was around to ask questions. It took us a long time to get... More

Distinct glades are the hallmark here. Each theme has its unique beauty. However, green is the overwhelming color. Flowers are minimal, but most are flourishing.
