“Beautiful”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

The most beautiful gardens on the east coast. The grounds are always kept in good condition, manicured, but still natural feeling. Many of the gardens change with the seasons so there is always something new to see. It's magical being there and your cares and woes will melt away while you walk through natures beauty.

“Very nice for families, couples and solo nature enthusiasts!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Big trails - you can take a 30-minute brisk walk here without having to leave the garden grounds, plus lots more if you exit out into Wheaton Regional Park. Although it's especially lovely in fall and spring, the grounds are well-maintained year-round and it's well worth stopping by in the winter to walk around the grounds and duck into the greenhouse!

“Great Christmas lights”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

My 3 year old loved the Christmas lights display. It's great to be able to walk around instead of just drive in the car like many other displays.

“Beautiful and relaxing”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

It's a must to go either during the day or to see the lights at night. A beautiful green house, with some train toys moving around a mini city. Lots of beautiful orchids and tropical plants.
