The grounds were in pretty rough shape, and the mansion was just open, no lights on or anything. I thought there might be a brochure or something, but there wasn't. Everything opens at different hours too.

This is a beautiful area. It's surprising to see in the middle of a large city. The gardens were well maintained and spacious. There is also a wooded area with some trails for moderate hiking. There were some very beautiful flowers blooming in the gardens....More

Can we have a pique unique there?
