Definitely worth a visit! Beautiful landscapes of Minnesota native and non native plants. Most areas accessible and paved. There are hills. Iris plants were just in full bloom week of June 8. Just missed the tulips by a few weeks. They do offer a tram...More

Loved all the different types of gardens. Even going before most stuff was blooming it was beautiful. The air smelt so fresh! Only complaint was the maps were not as good as they could be.

The tulips were at their peak-think the guide said 38,000 tulips! Take the trolley on the 3 Mile Drive and then return to sites that interest you. Don’t miss the bee center at the Red Barn-or the gift shop. The restaurant is ok for a...More

No reservations needed. I would check out their website for more details. It's a wonderful place to go for a good hike and to see nature at it's best. So if you have the opportunity, don't miss it. It's a great experience.
