I went here with a friend this weekend and was blown away. The gardens are fantastic and it's great to see a place with some aged material. Beautiful. Would highly recommend.

Wwheelchair accessibility was difficult. More signage would help direct guests and avoid ending near areas which had stairs instead of ramps. We hired a car to see the Gardens and were disappointed.

Nice one but could be better! the rose garden is really need a good maintenance. Generally it is a well maintained botanic garden, pay a visit to the visitor center to find out they built it with an eco-friendly approach

What a breath of fresh air. Walking around the beautiful greens, grass, trees, shrubs, etc made me feel close to Mother Nature and the Lord. Wearing sneakers certainl;y helps.

We visited the Botanical garden using our New York passes which allowed free entry. We found the gardens to be beautiful and well kept, it was nice to walk around and see mainly locals inside as it's a little off the tourist trail so not over crowded which was a nice change. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around in the sunshine... More

The grounds are beautiful and there are a lot of different exhibits to see. The indoor gardens are a good place to go if the weather is bad. There's a vegetable and herb garden- fun to look all the architecture as well as the unique variety of herbs and veggies they are growing. Lots of different walking trails, so it... More

The indoor tropical garden is especially comforting on a cold winter day. I am a member and I treasure being able to visit whenever I can. It is highly recommended for... More
