When we went, we were nearly the only ones there. We had a nice, relaxing stroll in the gardens and could see the tulips blossoming. Its a large area, so gives yourselves at least an hour to explore. My only complaint would be the faded maps. It took us forever to find the "You are here" marker on the map because it was scratched off of the wood. But this was more amusing than anything, and if you're going to get lost, it may as well be in a beautiful garden!
