Love this place - it is beautiful. It's not very large, but it's very well maintained. Even in the winter, there were flowers blooming and plenty to see. Our families really enjoyed being here, and it is the perfect backdrop for photos.

We went to this at night, while decorated for Christmas. It was so beautiful! Entry was by donation and minimum of $2 per person. We obviously donated more because that was so low, based on upkeeping the garden and all the work that was involved in putting up the Holiday lights! While we were there we enjoyed watching jugglers and a magician! It was a great night and I would highly recommend going when decorated for the holidays!

Gardens are not very extensive but it is done up very nice for the Christmas season with many lights, music, and entertainment.

We visited the holiday light display for the first time and just loved it. What a great venue for an evening walk in a safe and gorgeous environment! Lots of creativity on display!

Visited in November, This is an amazing and beautiful garden. This is not a visit to be rushed-there is plenty to see in all the various gardens. Lovely fountains and mosaic benches as well as a wedding garden. Be sure to take your camera! There is no charge for the gardens, and they have nice picnic areas as well. They are also adjacent to the Heritage Village, an area of restored buildings and the Fishing Center (also free of charge) We spent most of the day walking through the gardens. Our only regret was we were just a few weeks too early for the Christmas lights. Be sure to visit the gift shop while you are there, since all purchases benefit the upkeep of the gardens. HIghly recommend-great destination for for all, including children.
