There are collections of flowering shrubs that may be beautiful, but in late June there was little blooming except liriope. The garden consists of a very handsome path made from historic bricks. The Woodland Path was closed due to an unsafe tree. The lakeside pavilion is picturesque. There is a grouping of cycads and other tropicals further on, that would be attractive for wedding photos. The Maclay House is interesting from the outside. Although the sign said it was open daily 9-5, it was close at 3 pm. The formal gardens are poorly executed and lack distinction in design or horticultural materials. This may be an excellent venue for events, but today there was very little of horticultural interest.
