Stunning gardens and very well kept trails. Amazing statues from around the word in gorgeous garden displays. Looking forward to going back when the buildings are open again.

I love this park. The trails are great for hiking. I've stayed in the mansion with family overnight, and it's an awesome place to stay. The statues are fun to look at and I love walking around the various gardens. If you take the time to read about it, this park has a lot of cool stories, as well. I highly recommend coming here if you happen to be in the area. I last visited in January, but we've been many times before that. Also, you don't have to pay to get in, since it's a park.

I just spent 4 days at the Mansion and I must say it is really impressive. There are a few things with housekeeping that could improve but everything else was really nice. My room had a bay window overlooking the pond and was very comfortable. The food was awesome and the grounds are something else. You can do a lot of walking and not see the same place twice. There are statues hidden everywhere which makes hiking more interesting. Given the opportunity, I'd stay there again.

We have visited on several occasions for indoor special events. We have never been disappointed. We have gone to several fun and very entertaining mystery dinners put on in the main house. They all have been a very fun and interactive experience that we personally feel are better than any other mystery dinner we have attended. The cast they have from Champaign is just a great cast with fun people. Also, the Holiday Open House is wonderful as well. We choose to have a meal when we purchased the tickets. The caterer for the mystery dinners and the Holiday Open House lunch is absolutely amazing! The staff is just wonderful to provide special dietary needs and they are the nicest people, all while providing a wonderful meal. The brownies they offer are quite a hit as well. The large home is a neat place to explore and see as well. The grounds around the home are vast and we have only seen a small part of the grounds which appear to us to be quite lovely.
