Not very diverse or extensive it was an enjoyable few hours but not fantastic. There are a lot of glass sculptures nestled in between the plants which at times I felt took away from the natural beauty.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I can find no parking on the website closer than an 11 minute walk from the island in the middle or the highway according to google maps. My 82 year old mother will be too pooped to stroll through the gardens if she has to hike from the highway. Is there any place to park closer than this? It doesnt have to be free. She doesnt have a handicapped placard.

Went already on a weekday and parked in the circle. No more answers needed but Trip Advisor doesnt have a means to contact them to stop.

I don't think so.
Do you do reciprocals with other members of American Horticultural society like Botanica the Wichita Gardens?
