“Good, but small”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

If you're walking round Lake Mirror, don't miss Hollis Garden -- but don't make a special journey to find it. There are very nice plants and flowers, some decent statuary, and pleasant music. What there isn't is much of anything. Think of this as a pleasant formal garden, rather than a botanical treat, and you won't be disappointed. It is sad that closing time seems to be well before sundown, I think this would be a more special test in the early evening.

“A little disapointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Was a little disappointed this time. With it being May I expected to see more blooms in the garden. Still pretty but not as lush as in October. It is free to the public. So I hope they are getting the funding they need.

“Had my wedding here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Very nice and the staff was very helpful in making sure the wedding went off with out a hitch. The Garden was great for pictures after the event. If there is no events going on, it is nice to just walk around the garden and see the beauty.

“Love it but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

I love it but wish it was a bit bigger. I am looking to get married somewhere and it's 1k here, $500+ for renting it and $500+ to put down but will get back after the event. It's a nice garden still, but a bit pricey to rent out for 2 hours...
