A beautiful botanical garden to behold where once a drive-in stood! This garden is only 20 years old but it feels a lot more mature. Many nooks and crannies, a rock garden, rose garden, perennial beds and a vegetable garden, a pond to gaze upon from a large gazebo... and much more, guided tours take 1 1/2 hours, well worth...

I am a local who went to the Flora Café for the FIRST time! But it won't be my last! I discovered a diamond in the rough today with this exquisite café that serves impeccable food in the loveliest of ambiances! The service with a smile was just an added bonus! And my oh my that dessert menu was simply... More

After driving a while, you will enjoy the walk around these gardens. Edibles mixed with ornamentals. Clever topiaries. Intriguing planting choices. Not your granny's garden.

Very nice gardens with added valse like Café Flora and l'herboristerie, where on week-ends there are lectures/workshops on edible plants, flosers etc

Made a four hour trip to see the Botanical Gardens after waiting for years. The grounds as in the layout of the gardens were enjoyable however, there were so many beds not weeded and had difficulty seeing some of the plants because of this. Saw very limited staff, 3 weeding and 1 mowing on the entire grounds. Very little color... More

Nice garden, but obviously the time of year will affect the quality of attractions. Nice event for the Halloween weekend with hundreds of pumpkins carved by local schools.

Unforgetable! Garden has something for everyone including some truly well done topiaries! Beautiful flowers, well-kept grounds, definitely a great place for pictures. If we pass that way again, I would make another visit.

I have been to the Botanical Gardens during the spring and summer and enjoyed it immensely. However, this October was the first visit to the Halloween themed weekend and it was amazing. Such a lot of work must have gone into this event. Hundreds and hundreds of decorated pumpkins as well as "ghostly" things in trees and around the grounds.... More

Very excited to go to the botanical garden. The brochure depicted 15 different specialty areas, including a rose garden, shade garden, celestial garden, etc. What a disappointment! The garden had many weeds, and there was very little to see, despite it being summertime. It was quite small and took us very little time to see everything..which was our choice. Save... More
