This is always a relief in cold weather and the plants are always changing. Well worth the trip several times a winter.

Nice place to bring visitors that come to town and really the park is for all ages with a great playground. It has been maintained beautifully throughout the years and you may catch a wedding ceremony on your visit! No fees involved.

We loved strolling around the gardens, however, we didn't know the Botantical Building didn't open up until noon so we were disappointed. They were also setting up for a wedding out in the garden which is a perfect place for such a venue.
