Got to visit for free, it would be pricey otherwise. $15 parking. Bus stop right outside looks like the deal. We loved it and will be back. Family yearly membership is the best deal. Volunteers are very friendly and helpful. Beautiful waterfalls, gardens, buildings.

What a great place to visit while visiting this bustling city . . . you would never know you are in the city (unless you hear a siren) while strolling through and enjoying the serenity of this arboretum.

The botanical gardens are amazing! It's clearly well maintained, all the staff friendly and able to help. My advice is to choose a day that is not that hot, then it will be more pleasant. All the gardens are beautiful, great for picnicking and to take nice pictures.
Also, they have a good restaurant, where you can find delicious desserts, tea, wine, coffee...

This place was well kept and even thought it was extremely hot it was still enjoyable! It was large enough for us to get lost haha! We had to ask directions for the exit but the staff was great!
