The gardens are a wonderful place to get outdoors with the grandchildren. Plenty of opportunities for them to run and play and still stop and smell the flowers. Something they cannot do electronically 🌹

For the shape of the Gardens, I believe the price was a bit high. Many dying and dead flowers, disappointed. Thank You...

If you love nature, gardening, and special plans; you'll love touring the arboretum! Plan on lots of walking and picture taking -- if you like special architectural areas with plantings! Great place in the spring when the temp is 'just right'!
