Wow! This place is a "don't miss" for sure. You can spend 10 minutes here or an hour, and either way you'll be glad you came. This is a terrific free and wholesome experience, and well worth the short drive off the interstate.

The parking is just a level below where the garden is but it is accessible. My mom uses a walker and was able to easily walk.
