We did a Birding walk here in the early AM. Saw lots of birds and later enjoyed the beautiful park like setting of the BGO. We are BGO members and have been since before it had a place to be.It is a very Special Place!

We visited the Botanical Gardens in April, so unfortunately not a lot of flowers were in bloom, but there was enough to hold our interest. The flowers that were in bloom, were spectacular (season was a little slow this spring), and the walkways definitely hold...More

Very pretty gardens and well laid out. Lots of mature shrubs, trees and even a butterfly house. Beautiful. Our only negative experience was the lady at the desk taking entrance fees. I asked if they offered either a senior discount or a veterans discount. She...More

I'm a little torn on my feelings about this botanical garden. It's rather small compared to other towns. We paid $7.00 per person, and we do not feel we got value. I'm sure if I returned as Spring was in full bloom, I'd feel the...More
