“Peaceful - but not very big”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

You can see it all in 30 minutes. Luckily they are right beside a huge nature preserve and you can add to your walking by visiting there too. It is free and you will enjoy your visit - it will just be short!

Short walk to pretty sights. Nut trees and flowers. Took many pictures here. Would be a beautiful place for a wedding.

“Photographer's Paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Spent a delightful 45 minutes here on a Monday afternoon - had the place all to ourselves. Very quiet, peaceful, colorful and informative. Paved paths, lawns, a pond, exotic and rare fruit tree orchard where birds, butterflies, dragonflies and turtles make this place home. Many of the plants were labelled or identified with signs. Its a great place for photography.

“Exotic fruit trees and beautiful surroundings.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

We stopped by just before going to Robinson preserve as it is next door. This place is beautiful and fascinating. The trees, often dripping with exotic fruit, are wonderful. They have markers so you will know what you're looking at. There is a lovely lake where you might see turtles and all manner of long legged birdies. We enjoyed wandering slowly around this free and gorgeous garden. There is a fun seat that swings and is not easy to walk away from! We go again and again and see the trees at various stages of growth. Lovely!
