The gardens are very pretty and well maintained. There are areas all around with sculptures that make for fun photo opportunities.

My wife and I attended the Botanical Garden. It is a nice stroll and most important, it was not too hot nor too cold. the weather was perfect, plenty of shade and very relaxing if you love looking at different plants. Its a nice place to visit and a relaxing time.

Great place to visit especially with special events. Good place to take kids. Some artwork and concerts at times. If you live in town get a membership. Some recent hurricane damage but I expect this will be cleared up soon as many volunteers work here.

My husband and I have driven past the gardens since as long as I can recall. After an appointment one afternoon we decided to stop in. I was amazed at all the different species of plants in this lovely garden. So many trails and for my granddaughter she found many hiding places. It was a very pleasant afternoon. For free

Wonderful way to take a break from the busy freeway. Well worth the time. Nice variety of locally indigenous trees and bird life.

It's very beautiful, but could use some more entertainment. Christmas is beautiful there, but could always have more.
