We visited Veterans Day and they had extra programming. But a wonderful spot to take your kids anytime. Right now there is an amazing lego exhibit throughout. Also a good spot for a nice walk.

My daughters and I enjoyed touring these gardens and talking with the Docent here. Great place for photos, and relaxing amid the beautiful grounds. Family friendly, and a nice walk. Great place to spend a morning or afternoon, for peace and relaxing time in nature.
