We are so lucky to have these beautiful gardens in our city. Each and every time I go I see something new. The change of the seasons offers so many beautiful plants, trees, flowers, and places for families to spend time outside. My husband and I have totally enjoyed the bike nights and crew regattas. Bike nights are a great way to get some exercise while seeing so much. The hydrangea garden is amazing. So are the azaleas. The trees are expansive. The butterfly garden has such pretty colors. I am always blown away with the blooms of bulbs. We walked through the water play area on our last visit and I wished I was a kid again. The roses are expansive and unbelievable when in bloom. It is hard to believe the airport is right next door, but even watching planes take off is fun from the area they have on the hill. My only complaint is the removal of all eagle nests from the gardens due to the proximity of the airport. Aside from that the gardens are well worth the visit and membership if you live nearby.
