It is a great place to relax and walk around. All the flowers were in full bloom. The best flowers that I loved were the different roses. I also loved watching the geese. At one time one of the geese started following me around. The tram that they offer is fun to ride. It takes you all over the parks to see the different flowers. It is great ride to take if you can't walk the whole park. It is a great place for the whole family.

I enjoy the gardens so much, I became a member. It's a great place to walk for exercise or just to clear your head. It's fun with kids, too. I always enjoy seeing something different, whether it's a new attraction or a feature I never noticed. It's also nice to see the changes throughout the year.

It's a beautiful relaxing place with a couple of resident bald eagles. The drawback is that it's noisy since it's right next to an international airport. But, hey, they're not flying in and out that much.

There's always something in bloom. Miles of walking paths wind in and out through the gardens. There's even a boat you can take to see a different view of the landscaping. Be sure to visit when the bulbs are in bloom and again when the rose garden is blooming. They have dozens and dozens of different kinds of roses - some over 100 years old.
