Good place for a picnic or just a place to get in touch with nature. Go in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the summer heat. The concession food prices are a hot high but, there are alot of places to eat nearby where you get more for your buck especially if you have kids with you.

We visited the aquarium, botanic gardens, bug museum, and butterfly pavilion. Each section was beautifully, thoughtfully created. The price was super reasonable and well worth every penny.

The day that we visited was very hot, but the visit to the zoo was worth the heat. Very, very good zoo.

If I lived there we would have a season pass! Pictures also don't do it justice. It's well planned and maintained. You could have a picnic there.

The biological park includes an aquarium and botanical garden. The children's section of the garden is whimsical from the giant dragon at the entrance to enormous carrots, and cavern. Adults will enjoy the shaded pathways surrounded by specialty gardens ranging from the US to Europe to Japan.

The gardens were beautiful, but since we are not from the area, I was very interested to know the different trees & plantings. There were a few signs, but not nearly enough. There is a very large model train set-up that is not only appealing to children, but adults also. The designer definitely has a sense of humor! Another highlight... More

It was good I loved seeing all the plants and I think people can get married there because there is a wedding chapel
