This isn't a botanical garden in the classical sense. It is a lovely wooded area with meandering trails. We were in town visiting and had my dog, so this was a nice dog-friendly place to spend some time. There is a flat loop around a reservoir that was closed for repairs when we were there, about 0.72 miles long.

This "botanical garden" is anything but a botanical garden, in the traditional sense of the word. The only clearly defined area was a lovely butterfly garden that lived up to its name ... it had gorgeous flowers with many types of butterflies, native bees, and flies. The park is beautiful and that vegetation is reclaiming a lakebed of a reservoir.... More

A great place to go to hike. The only disadvantage is that you have to walk up and down a gravel hill to get to and from this spot. So if it rains this makes it difficult. But they do all sorts of educational nature classes there. A great place to go and learn. Also a great place to hike... More

Somebody else said it: This place is a work in progress by a dedicated small staff and volunteers. I visited in November, so didn't see many flowers--a few at the entrance off the roadway.They offer a guided hike or two nearly every month of the year, and I took advantage of one of those. I learned alot, but didn't get... More

This was our visit to the Botanical Garden for a hike. Nice place. We enjoyed the well manicured gravel path (no ticks) and had a nice hike around the loop. There were also some other side trails abutting the main trail. Don't be alarmed if you hear gun shots- there is a gun club nearby. Distracting but not dangerous!

My wife and I went here for my birthday yesterday. They did not have many flowers still in bloom but it was a nice serene place to spend a quiet afternoon.

I took my son for walk on a sunday afternoon. They have the lower parking lot open from 1-4 on Sundays. It was so peaceful and the walk was super easy to do with the stroller!!! They had a volunteer there handing out trail maps and she was so very polite and knowledgeable!!! Will definitely take my little guy back!!!

The Botanic Garden is a somewhat developed Garden. Nice walking paths through field and forest. Not very interpretative -if that is what you are looking for-but an excellent opportunity to experience nature-bring your own field guides. The Garden does have very nice places to just sit-especially if you are willing/able to hike a bit (on trails) to get to them.... More

This is a quiet walking or running trail however it is a steep hill down to the flatter area. Not so bad going down but after walking a bit challenging coming back up. It is a work in progress but a good nature walk.
