Went out with nephew to take pics for prom. It’s a nice area but definitely come stand a coat of paint on the gazebos. Also I had previously visited for a wedding reception. It’s nice but not a huge venue.

I really liked the botanical gardens but I was expecting a bit more. All the gardens were well groomed and cared for, and the places to walk were cleaned very nicely but there wasn't all that much. My family and I were actually done walking...More
