Loved this place! It was absolutely beautiful, pretty warm in the middle of the day, but there was enough shade to make it okay.

These gardens are truly both an arboretum and a botanical garden. The former because it offers at least two lovely hiking paths through woodlands and the latter because it has areas that are well-tended with flowers and botanical specimens. I especially appreciated that they have...More

My sister and I went one hot day. It was so pretty and very nice to walk around at. however, we were eaten alive by mosquitoes. I’ve never had so many bug bites before.
