We were so delighted that we only finished a potion of the gardens and have much more to see the next time we come. We also loved the European Art Exhibit and look forward to the American Art Exhibit the next time we visit.

Food is not allowed on the grounds, but when you first come in there is a small kiosk where you can buy some things (I saw some people walking around with ice cream and coffee). There are some tables there where you can eat.
