A fun morning or afternoon activity. Pleasant and quite. Rather small for a botanical garden, but the fruits and herbs section is interesting and has lots of variety. It's a good activity to pair with the heritage village next door.

What a nice walk among the beautiful plants. The flowers were limited due to the season but this was still worth the visit.

It is off season so flowers were limited but the gardens are nicely taken care of and a very nice staffed information area which would answer any questions related to plants.
