“Perfect fall afternoon.”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

The gardens are beautifully tended around some natural meadows along the river... there are quite a few wonderful Jun Kaneko sculptures here and there, adding some really unique colours and dimension.

“Nicely done, but overly spacious and not cheap”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Thank goodness our daughter was free, although we still felt the $7/ea was a little pricey. While the gardens are nice, you cover a lot of ground to get from attraction to attraction with little in-between. Perhaps it felt this way with a small one, but keep that in mind. The best part was the trains, so don't pass that by. It was fine to do once, but unless you're hardcore on flower and plants you can pass this by.

“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.
