This is a very nice garden, which does a wonderful job of combining a city park, botanical garden, and sculpture in one cohesive whole. The art center was closed--will plan better next time, as it looked really nice.

No, the gardens are free. There are buildings and other things around the property that may have a cost to them, I did not have a chance to explore them
