We loved touring the garden and exhibit. Take water along as it can get very hot in the garden with little breeze. Beautiful and fun for the kids.

Absolutely loved the gardens. The orchids are incredible. It has just the right balance of being natural but yet not too manicured! Bamboo Pavilion provided the best rain shelter. Highly recommended visit!

An alternative to spending the entire day on the beautiful beach. Leisurely stroll through beautiful gardens; spend an hour or several. Both shady and sunlit areas. Clean restrooms, cute gift shop. Went in off season, saw only a few other people. Pleasant and relaxing.

Lovely gardens. Friendly staff, just don't show up early. The lily ponds are amazing. I saw exotic birds, finches, a beautiful water snake.
