“Kids Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Fun and educational. Great place to walk around and view some pretty sights. The local KSS uses this place a lot for kids adventures, and local flower clubs meet regularly. Great place for a wedding!

It was one of the most beautiful gardens we have ever seen. Our teenage son even go interested and flowers are "sissy."

“Lovely in the snow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I wanted to see the gardens despite the first snow of the season. It was delightful, especially covered in white snow and icicles. What a charming garden to visit any time of the year.

“Lovely garden walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Garden was blooming and waterfalls flowing in this early Fall timeframe. Wedding party was using the gardens for photography, which was outstanding in the warm Fall weather. Great garden for looking at various plants, or just sitting on one of the many benches and reading a good book.
