A great place to take a date or the family. Beautifully landscaped! A paved walking trail loops through the park. Lots of nice photo opportunities. Small entrance fee and they charge professional photographers a fee who wish to do photo shoots in the gardens.

I have been here more than a few times. Sometimes the park is not busy, and other times it is. Either way, the park is a calm and beautiful experience. I highly recommend to any person or group of people!

Not if you are just taking personal photos or pictures of your family. They do charge if you are working as a professional photographer taking photos of someone who is paying you.
