“A Treasure”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This is a great place to go for a stroll. The gardeners have done a wonderful job playing out the extensive gardens and it fills your senses with colors, fragrance and textures, all in harmony.

“Have seen better”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Tram tour was very nice but there is a lot of space with nothing there. A bit disappointing. I was with a group but wouldn't go back on my own. Nice box lunch was provided with our group so that was a plus.

“Spacious, but needs more work done”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We enjoyed several areas of the gardens as well as the tram ride. The rose garden was extensive and the English garden was beautiful.

“Tram Tour GREAT! Some other things, "Not so much."”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Very much enjoyed the tram tour, and seeing the ongoing development of the gardens. Disappointed that the Cafe' was put on the curbside due to preparations for a major upcoming event. Even the chef seeming disappointed and put out to only having cold items for sale. Signage within the building could be much improved as there were no visible signs to find restrooms. Only one person was at the counter and while she was friendly, she was busy with ticket sales and I had to wait to ask for directions.

“Great Tour of Gardens”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

A spring and fall must see. I took the tram tour with friends. Several stops along the way were appreciated. The restaurant was also a plus.
