This garden is located approximately 5 miles outside city limits. The garden is lovingly maintained and includes several benches and garden rooms to sit and relax. The children's garden is an inspiration with a secret sitting area tucked under the canopy of a flowering cherry. It's free therapy!

What a great little gem! Took our grandson early in the morning and it was quiet, well maintained and we loved the visit. Lots of interesting little metal sculptures, glass balls, benches as well as a vegetable garden learning center. Great place for the whole family!

This garden has many little nooks for sitting and just enjoying the lovely setting. The gardens are well maintained and usually there are volunteers in the gardens working and talking to guests. It is a very safe place for children with a garden area specifically set up for children. Of course it is especially beautiful at different times of the... More

The Douglas County Master Gardeners have designed and created the most wonderful garden that has a variety of mini-gardens to delight just about anyone. Some examples include an interactive children's area, a Japanese garden, a butterfly garden and a vermicomposting area that explains how plants and worms work... More

This garden is a treat for all seasons, but of course between the months of May and October it's at its best. There is a garden for everyone here waiting for you to discover: Japanese garden; Children's Garden; Xeriscape Garden; Composting; Worm Bins; and much much more.

Nice garden & a welcome addition to the area. Kudos to those who put this together. However, our very first visit at 2:30 on a Sunday in September did not go well. We were chased away by the grounds keeper. She came in, easily seeing we were there, and turned on all the sprinklers. It's really difficult to walk through... More

Enjoyed a walk through this small venue developed by master gardeners. Flowers, trees, shrubs, a Japanese Garden, and a children's area are featured within this small venue. We enjoyed a stroll and it's only a few minutes from I-5's exit 125.
