“Botanical Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Entrance hard to find, but worth the search. Lot of info, beautiful setting.
You do not have to be a botanist to enjoy.

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

A beautiful large park, that is included as part of the tour bus locations. Had a delicious cafe au latte with local beignots, very enjoyable. Not too much time to look around but a nice experience.

A beautiful setting in the middle of the city. A great place for a picnic lunch looking over the ponds!

“Clean....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I'm pressed with the area....didn't know the city park is larger than NY's Central Park.... Again, the time was a low period, enjoyable time. Will return....
