Beautiful gardens in a pleasant walk through environment. A very relaxing place to visit even when the flowers are not in bloom.

Crystal Springs is a beautiful park with water and numerous rather seldom found plants in a park. Especially in fall when the colours change it is a mix of golden and red and green leaves. Park-fans will love this one!

Love this place! Meander through the paths and see all kinds of wildlife as well as flowers and plants. It's just special here. Great place to take children or just a book.

This small garden is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood and bordered by a golf course. The pathways meander through shaded areas, near babbling brooks, near waterfalls and around a serene lake. One could easily spend an afternoon enjoying the beauty of the garden.

It was a super find! Many events are held here, i.e., weddings. This is a great picture spot to share with others.

This is such a perfect place for a wedding. Beautiful, nature, quite and private. I highly recommend this site for a wedding, birthday party, family reunion, or a special party.

A little run down, and with few rhodos flowering when we visited, but pleasant views and many side trails.

This and The Japanese Gardens are the two best places, if you are looking for a peaceful beautiful place to meditate, or just escape to a quiet tranquil place. I suggest you visit during a weekday, instead of a Saturday or Sunday.

If you love Rhododendrons then this is the place to visit in the Spring. The blossoms and the entire setting is enchanting.

For the buds to blooms on the rhodies..... April to first part of August. Yet, anytime is very nice. Even on a rainy day with a great umbrella. It is relaxing and renewing from the busy-ness of life. It is not over... More

There is also no admission charged prior to 10AM, if you can get them there early enough, or after 6PM. The park itself is open dawn to dusk. So you still have an opportunity on Fridays.
