We stop by to see the Botanical Garden. Interest but small. Early spring flowers. The park is large and a nice drive around. Interesting bike and hiking paths. Slip lines Available.

This hidden gem is a fenced in respite, filled with local flora worth perusing; as well as pathways and seating areas. It's a great place to spend a little time. Bring your camera (and some insect repellant if you're wearing shorts).
