It's beautiful and there are some nice trails for hiking and biking, taking your dog out on a picnic. Lovely. The only problem is that there are some parts of the trail and seem deserted and a little scary. Also, there is no lighting, so make sure you're out of the park itself before dark.

Edwards Gardens is known for horticulture. But it's really a nice place to start a nice walk or cycle.

I went with a group of friends to enjoy the trees, flowers, and shrubbery and ended up seeing birds, wood chucks, squirrels of course, and some geese. There were kids in strollers with grandparents, couples in love and people like us, just a bunch of friends.

Edwards Gardens, particularly in late Spring, is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. There are many walking paths, benches and even a good outdoor cafe.

Easily accessible by public transport. Very tranquil and beautiful with lots of different plants and garden types. The creek is very lovely. Great place for engagement photos. Every time I come here, I leave feeling in awe of nature and it's variety and beauty.

We were part of a garden tour and although it was really hot, we paced ourselves during our visit. As I recall, although wheelchair accessible, there are many places were a non-motorized wheelchair would be quite difficult to maneuver without constant assistance. There were many areas of gorgeous landscaping as some of the gardens seasons were already done. It would... More
