Went here about 1 1/2 hours before closing (which was really not enough time). The next time, we will bring a picnic lunch, and enjoy a more leisurely visit. We did not make it to the Japanese Gardens, but were able to peek through the fence. We did go into the tropical part (both torpical and Japanese have an entry fee). Had I known, I would have gone straight to the Japanese Gardens first, then meandered back to the car.
If walking is an issue, you can have someone meet you at the other "end" with the car, else save some energy to double back to the main parking area. All of the plants and trees are labelled, in case you would like to add some to your own home garden.
