“Pretty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Pretty gardens but in my opinion not hardly worth the hype. These are beautiful gardens but I couldn't see why the huge fuss. It didn't seem to be worthy of the hype but that's just my opinion

“Beautiful gardens any season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have gone to this garden many times in my life. I like the fall the best because of the maple leaves changing color.

A beautiful garden and a great place to go alone to relax and meditate or take the family. The gardens and ponds are simply amazing.

“Tranquility & Beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

In the middle of the City, one of my favorite places. Not often crowded, beautiful at any time of year but Spring is best.

“SO PEACEFUL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a good place to visit during hot summer days. It is well shaded and so interesting. However, be aware, there are some trails that are not good for elderly or handicapped. There are very interesting examples of all kinds of gardens.
