“Peace and quiet in the city.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

I tried to get here when the pink ladies slippers were blooming, but missed them again. Plan to spend some time here. No formal gardens here, just lots of great wild flowers in a natural setting.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I love to relax here or take photos in mid-summer through September. It's great for hiking, too. The flowers constantly change. Look for lots of butterflies towards the end of summer.

“A Favorite Hiking Spot with Young Children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Beautiful place for a nature hike with small children. We live in the city and used to go to Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden for a hike and bring a picnic lunch. There is a small stream with a little bridge and narrow paths to run along...just right for young children (not good for strollers though)
