“November stroll of quiet solitude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

There is precious little color out in November but there is solitude a midst the abundant flora. The pathways are clearly marked, with gentle slopes and well packed gravel for stumble proof seniors to manage. Most foliage is tagged so you are never at a loss of what you are seeing. The winter vegetables in the well manicured raised beds was a highlight. Lower your expectations for this time of year and enjoy being outside in nature

“When your looking for something to do on a nice spring day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Great place to spend an hour or two taking in the beautiful plantings. Take a walk on the tree covered walkways and admire what the students at the college have accomplished.
Springtime is best.
