The conservatory is nice and kept up well, and the sunken garden is pretty to look at. The children's garden got my wife's interest more than anything though! It's a great place to visit, but very small compared to the one in fort wayne. However,...More

My friend is lucky enough to live about a block away from this lovely park and gardens. Pros: walk-ways, pool, outdoor theater, lawns, walk paths. Cons: not a one.

It is amazing there. Sometimes it seems so crazy that you are so close to downtown with all of this beauty around you. When I go to the farmer's market, I always take a stroll through the sunken gardens. The Conservatory is worth the money....More

My daughter loved watching the fish in the ponds and checking out all the different plants. They have a small section with a snake, tarantula, lizard, and some fish for kids to look at as well. It was a great cheap little stop.

The children absolutely loved the gardens. It was a cheap place for them to walk around and look at things they don’t usually get to see. They referred to it as “the Jurassic Park place.” We will for sure stop again next time we’re in...More
