Beautiful Asian garden. Easy access walking trails through out the gardens. I did visit before most of the flowers had bloomed but it was still beautiful. I would like to return in late April or May. I did not have time to visit the greenhouse,...More

Walking trails were varied and well marked. More than one entrance with brochures to give information about plants, trees, and places to sit and watch the animals.

Spring blooms in abundance, great structure to the various areas, diverse styles of landscaping. Really liked these as smaller urban type gardens, you will enjoy.

We had a good time wandering around the garden. For late summer there was quite a bit of flowering plants. The wooded side of the park was interesting too. . Well marked and labeled. We enjoyed the indoor greenhouse also. Interesting displays.

This place is bigger than expected. Although the signage could be better, once you get your bearings you may find that you prefer to be lost in their woods! The plant sale in April is the best place to purchase easy to care for native...More

My husband and I had a lovely day exploring and seeing so many beautiful and exotic plants. It was not crowded at all, so we had a leisurely, peaceful stroll through the grounds, buildings and trails.

The grounds are lovely. Lots of "pocket gardens", water, sculptures, picnic benches etc. Flowers are mostly shade variety as you are walking in a forest. BUT if you have anyone in your party that is at all walking challenged or if you are even thinking...More
