We try to come here at least once a year. Summer is great with all the flowers and that's what makes this place a favorite spot for wedding pictures.

Between the two gardens it is very nice. Like with any gardens, it depends on the time of year and end of June is pretty good. Nice gift shop and Aviary

The landscape and setting is great for photography and wedding photo and just roaming along the path and trails. Beautiful flowers and landscape is worth for spending 40 minutes there for tourist if you do not intend to walk the trails that lead to downtown.
