If you are a kind of person to just chill out and relax to enjoy a beautiful scenery, start your car and head straight. One has everything for everyone here at all the times right from the beautiful array of flowers, a little pond, a viewing gallery, wedding spot etc. You get to enjoy the wide spread landscape full of these in a quick 2-3 hours. Be prepared for a relaxing long walk around the garden. Ideal time to vist is around summer and fall. Nevertheless, you get to equally enjoy during the rest of the year as well.

Four stars are only for the pricing that was little creepy at ~ $12. Else, this is a perfect spot for a wonderful saturday afternoon / evening. Plenty of free parking space too. A must visit when you visit Richmond..

Our trip to see the lights was very enjoyable, it was nice to see all the children enjoying the exhibits. We toured the treehouse and the maze, saw the lighted garden vegetable lights, and really liked the effect colors had on the various streams and fountains on the property. Highly recommended, and I made a video of our visit.

A vacation highlight. Well worth the time and admission price.

If you get cold walking around, warm up in the Conservatory.

We were here right after Christmas to see the light display in the evening. Wonderful place to walk around outside. Also had displays indoors and a nice gift shop. A bit overpriced at $10.

Not only are the plant displays very interesting, but the tea room restaurant has good food and a relaxing environment. Good place to take out of town guests.
