We weren't sure it would be worthwhile to go in November; would anything be in bloom? Well, the answer is yes, lots of stuff. The trees were in peak color and plenty of plants were in fine form. In the time we had, we walked about half the trails, enjoying beauty at every turn, on probably one of the best... More

The rose garden is beautiful. There is also a couple of areas for the kids to have fun. There are some great activities and classes offered... More

I've only been to one other botanical garden, located in New Orleans. After visiting the zoo there and the zoo here and being sorely disappointed, I was sure what to expect for the gardens. I was quite surprised at the size and the diversity they had here. The rose gardens were large and smelled so wonderful. It's a nice romantic... More

WOW! My husband and i walked back to the rose... More

I am an avid gardener and was thrilled with the extensive gardens and themed areas. It is quite large and offer a... More
