Very nice and pretty. Sort of confusing to walk through if you haven't been there before, but it's not that big so you cannot get lost. It closes at sunset though, so be aware of that.

This Garden is a must go in the spring through early summer for wild flower lovers and birders. Parking is cheap. Fairly well maintained walking trails. Good interpretive center. A GPS would be helpful to find your way there.

A lovely place to contemplate life. Fresh. Open. Abundant wildflowers. Seasonal attraction. Easy to find and great to experience. Not only is the natural world great but so are the man made structures.
