We enjoy going there whenever we can. The Japanese garden is our favorite spot. We just sit in the little shelter on the hill and let the troubles melt away. We feel refreshed and like we had a mini vacation.

The Botanical Gardens are less than a half hour away from Bush Stadium. If you like flowers and horticultural things, this is a place for you to visit. If not, don't.
