Edwards Gardens provides paths for walk in a beautifully landscaped flower and tree garden with a small creek at the bottom of steep embarkments. We go regularly throughout Spring, Summer and Fall to replenish ourselves.

Not many people are aware of this place. Perfect for a great day out. Kids can run around and have fun while you relax and play with them. Very serene and so many beautiful flowers to watch.
