“75% wilted”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

Garden was in bloom but was mostly wilted because of the heat. We went in mid August. Description says it is in bloom all summer, and includes these beautiful pictures of full bloom. You'll have to catch it at just the right time of year to witness that. I wouldn't go unless you could see it in full bloom.

“Great place for a jog or walk after your lunch.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

It's basically a walking/running park with really cool art features that look like flowers. As you run/walk the metal flower features appear to bloom. Also there is alot of waterfalls so its a great place to see and something to do. Some areas were a bit seedy (bums digging thru trash, etc) but for the most part its safe. I would only go in the daytime. High noon is probably best. That is when there is a bunch of people there.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

The roses weren't in bloom yet, but we were able to take our dog and explore the area. It's beautiful without any blooms, so I can just imagine it with roses everywhere!
