“Well-kept garden; lilies were lovely”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We made a short trip during a very hot day to this garden. The lily display was outstanding and the rest of the garden was well designed and laid out. The fee was somewhat pricey for what was there, but it goes to the good cause of maintaining the garden.

“A pleasant "Walk in the Woods".”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

A bit pricey admission. Grounds well kept. Plants identified with little signs. Could be larger to aid reading.

“Finally made it for a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We finally stopped in after eyeing this for a couple years. What a treasure! The botanical garden is not enormous, but well worth a visit, and hosts quite a number of lovely and well labeled specimens for plant lovers. Also has a great kids area and garden. The were hosting a camp while we were there.

The gardens are laid out well, and there were some interesting ideas. Overall a very nice place to walk around, and we loved our visit. (I am a certified Landscape Designer, and I though the gardens were lovely!)

“Beautiful Botannical Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

At first it looked small and too rural to spend the time, but I hadn't noticed the gardens are on BOTH sides of the street. And...lots of benches for sitting and gazing, interesting sculptures and small buildings. It made for a lovely couple of hours. Tough to photograph - the noon sun was strong and perhaps there's an elevation issue. On the side with the parking are a number of different gardens. There's also an educational center, vegetable gardens, and more - they've nicely packed a lot in the space they have. Food for purchase was simple munchies, no dining area. Modest gift shop.
