“Wonderful place for an afternoon stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Spent a wonderful afternoon wandering - Quiet, relaxing, beautiful scenery. There are many paths to choose from and each takes you to something different. Currently there is no café, so be sure you have lunch prior to your visit. There are cold beverages and there was a "burger" truck in the parking lot. We found the staff very helpful and most of the plants and trees are marked. We enjoyed it very much.

Only downside is you have to use the catering they provide . And they are not much help when it Come to coordinating your event. Very unorganized

“Well worth the annual member fee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

When we have family and friends come into town during the spring we always take them here. Great place to relax and take a stroll. Not to mention all the events! Who doesn't like listening to a band with surroundings that just welcome you. The gift shop is just ok but we never go there for it anyway. They also offer a military discount.

“An Oasis!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is a beautiful area, just for a stroll, to having parties and weddings. The indoor outdoor areas are perfect for gatherings. Happy to have this facility in our backyard.

“Awesome Botanical Garden!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

All I can say is WOW! I've visited many botanical gardens over the past years, and this one is one of the tops. It's very well laid out, a relaxing walk, nicely manicured, not over done but very tastefully designed. My husband and I enjoyed our stroll through the 78 acre garden. There was one section we could not go through due to the rain from the day before - which we experienced ourselves and completely understood. Worth the visit!
