This Garden is a hidden gem. Beautiful grounds with lots of interesting special gardens. Not to be missed if you are in the area. The Thomas Jefferson garden (featuring plants that he would have in his garden) was great. The lake with the Japanese bridge was also a great photo op!

Good place to take the family or as a couple. Especially during thier christmas lightning. Birthday surprise for me..... It was enjoyable, very pretty at night. BUT dress warm and wear shoes you dont mind getting muddy. Went on a night after snow had melted.

I have been here different times of the year and it changes constantly. Breathtaking areas of color and then the next bend is a calming pond and tranquil settings.... Flowers and plants I've never seen before.... worth the time to walk through more than once!

a unique place in the middles of a busy town. the main attractions are the benches with quotes engraved into them and the lake. a place for quiet contemplation and peace.

This is well worth the time and admittance fee. They do a terrific job and grow gardens from all different countries. If you bring your family, it is $21, so it's a good deal.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much from a garden in a small town, so I was blown away with the beautiful blooms in Rotary Gardens. There are lots of paths to wander. So many flowers blooming at one time. It was breathtaking! I wish they had more plants labeled, but they said they are in the process of doing... More
