The volunteers who are responsible for the gardens should be very proud of their efforts. The gardens are really well maintained; peaceful and easy to navigate. Gold coin donations help to fund their work. Wonderful place for a quiet picnic.

A tranquil place with lovely gardens. The stone bridge is amazing. Easy to walk around and these gardens are well maintained. Different sections with different plants like the rose garden and the rain forest. Take your time to explore this lovely gem in the mountains

The gardens are amazing and created and maintained by volunteers to a very high standard. They are located in Forsythia Drive off Long Road, north end, (Long Rd is where Gallery Walk is located). Well worth a visit!
