I loved all of it! Beautiful even on a rainy day! The roses were amazing and so very fragrant, it was a wonderful way to spend the day!

Even though I am partial to these gardens (My husband proposed to me under one of the covered trelises) I have to say even towards the end of fall it is still a site to see! worth the trip, plus a cute gift shop!

Beautifully designed gardens, ponds and art installations. Nice views and a boardwalk over the water. Very relaxing.

Each section of the garden represents a different century in the town's history. It is gorgeous - an unexpected little oasis in the middle of town. There was a special "Ghost Town" night this year for the Halloween season where you were "guided" by scary characters through the gardens to see witches, dead singers performing, and such. Really fun! Highly recommended, during "Ghost Town" celebrations or any time.
