It's a great place for rest and relaxation in nature. Lots of paths and beautiful scenic spots. We happened to be there on a beautiful sunny day, but I know it would be pretty at any time of year and any time of day.

This is a very nice botanical garden with lots of flowering trees and shrubs in a semi-landscaped, sort of natural setting. Nicely done! The day we were there, it had just rained the whole day and the stream in the gardens was flooding and moving...More

Donations based garden, so it's free if you don't give. Great half mile loop trail that has a lot of beautiful plants and trees. It was better than the arboretum. Smaller obviously, but prettier.

We went here with 3 kids (4, 9, 12 years) and we all enjoyed walking around, looking at the flowers, taking a short hike, and generally taking a nice break after a long drive. I highly recommend. Plus, it's free.

This place is always changing. Things were just beginning to bloom and it was beautiful. You could spend a whole day just in the gardens.

Sorry, no, they are not. There is a nice path outside the park where you can walk dogs and we parked in the Botanical Park's parking lot to use it. We had wanted to have the dogs in our wedding pictures at the park and the... More

No, I live with my son, so I can't honor travelers with a place to stay while traveling. If I had a home of my own, I would gladly have them stay with me. Sorry.
