This park is nothing special. It has few unusual plantings and the gardens are humdrum. You would be far better off visiting Wakodahachee or Green Cay.

Fabulous Japanese gardens to explore independently or take a docent lead tour. I coordinated a docent led tour for 40 women. The expertise of the docent transformed the beautiful gardens into understanding of the juxtaposition of tree, shrubs, water & statuary. Having been to Japan,...More
