I can only echo the exuberant approvals of this beautiful acreage expressed by others.
Besides the absolute beauty of the flowering beds , rolling hillsides, trees, etc., the peaceful stillness throughout the area is so refreshing. This is an educational extension area for the Michigan State University. The area offers many wandering hiking trails. However, I would not recommend this for those needing walking assistance (.walkers, wheel chairs, etc.) .Admission is only $3 - probably the best $3 you have ever spent.

This is by far one of the most beautiful hidden gems Michigan has to offer. Lots of great hiking and beautiful gardens. A perfect place for a quiet day with nature

It's beautiful throughout the different seasons. My kids grew up playing in the shrub part and rolling down the giant hill. Great paths for walking. Much nature to see!!

MSU’s grounds are Beautiful to explore with amazing collection of flora and fauna. An excellent location for a photo shoot and the indoor conservancy works well on days of inclement weather.
Guided Tours and classes are also available.
