Based on Tripadvisor recommendations, I visited the gardens after a nearby business meeting. The lady in the visitor center was lovely and helpful. I walked the many paths and took pictures. The roses are past their prime but the test gardens with annuals are very pretty. There are many benches hidden away for quiet reflection. At the end I sat in a rocker near the water feature and enjoyed the peaceful sounds. It would be so nice if they would put other water features in the park as well.
