Always a fun place to relax. They have summer concerts, and the very popular plant sale in the Spring.

We have been members for ages. The gardens are gorgeous in the summer and always changing. The sculptures each year are great and tie in with the gardens

We had hoped to visit the Halloween Corn Maze, but we were too late. However there was a fun mini maze and the grounds were delightful. This working farm covers a lot of ground and has many nature trails. We walked about a mile. Each season offers great bird watching, and next time I'm going to bring binoculars. As a former teacher, I was especially interested in the 1874 Deer Creek one-room schoolhouse. There are also a cute play area for kids, seasonal wildflower gardens and the Trail of Lights, which we saw but were too early to enjoy fully. At only $5 per carload (honor system), the Chatfield Gardens provide a peaceful afternoon out. Note: Some parts are wheelchair accessible and some aren't.

when you need a break in a downtown oasis, this is a good choice. This garden is beautiful, well managed, peaceful. It's great all year long- just change your choices depending on what's blooming.

We have been to different other botanic garden and this place was big. They had a lot of plants. My husband was able to take great pictures. I particulary like the indoor garden with all the steps.
We visited this place when they were having a special. We did not have to pay to get in.
