Really beautiful, and a lot of space for an urban botanical garden. There was a big work site in the middle of the gardens for a new exhibit, but this was no issue. We went on a really hot day, and were absolutely knackered, but...More

The grounds and gardens are beautiful--in particular the Japanese Garden, the Rose Garden in June and the cherry blossoms in springtime.

One of the most beautiful gardens in the world. It is so walkable and so much to see. It does not overwhelm you in size.
