5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Beautiful setting with seasonal flowers and oriental landscaping. There was a wedding there when I visited. Take your camera because there are lots of photo opportunities.

A real big and the most beautiful garden I've ever seen. Be sure not to miss the Thai garden with the fully gold covered Thai pavilion in it!!

“beautiful gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Caught the last day of the butterfly exhibit. Kids loved seeing the displays of butterflies from around the world and hunt in the outside gardens for stamps to earn a custard from Micheal's. Enjoyable as always.

“Beautiful surprise in the city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Not an exciting attraction, but still one that should not be missed. The grounds are gorgeous and so well maintained. A person could wander around for hours here. There is no admission fee, just donations - so that was really cool as well. This makes for a very inexpensive family outing.

“Flowers,Flowers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I try to go once a month during spring and summer to see all the different flowers blooming. Everything looks great right now. Nice spot to listen to music in the summer too.
