These gardens are extensive, full of variety, and very peaceful and usually not too crowded on weekdays. They take amazing care of the grounds, all year round. My husband took me there for my birthday and we had so much fun strolling around snapping photos. The pond is beautiful and when we went there were tiny baby ducks following their mother around! This is a great place for kids, too.
The admission prices for adults ($10) are a bit steep to regularly visit but they have a number of free admission days worth checking out on the website.
Also, parking can be a little difficult (if the lot is full you have to park down the hill a bit and walk up) so come on a weekday.
