Known for its massive annual plantings and bronze sculpture, this 7.5-acre garden is a popular and relaxing retreat. A Wedding Gazebo adds an air of elegance, a man-made re-circulating stream provides texture, movement and sound, and a Sensory Garden engages visitors in an interactive landscape experience. A variety of sculpture placed throughout the garden provides artistic and historic interest.

The garden is open year-round from sunrise to sunset. Admission is free.

Stopped in for a stroll this week and wow has this garden changed since my last visit a few months ago. They have added a lot more seating, added new trails, and new art. The biggest surprise was the old mill that is being constructed. When completed next month it will be an awesome area to visit with a waterwheel... More

Very nice place to have a peaceful stroll. Not sure it's up to all the hype it gets, but if you are looking for a pretty place to go walk, I'd highly recommend it.

I was in town for an athletic event and stopped by this garden for an hour or so on a weekday afternoon-- early Spring. What an absolute delight! There are multiple gardens-- all exquisitely maintained, with paved pathways. It was not crowded. The big walk was beautiful and filled with wildlife. This garden was the highlight of my trip to...

Pretty and relaxing environment, but as an avid amateur photographer, I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't more beauty to behold.

This lovely garden spot is very nice at any time of year. Of course in the Spring and Summer you can see the most beautiful trees and flowers but during the other seasons the winding trail and the evergreen plants and statues are beautiful as well.

This is one of my favorite gardens not just for the wonderful landscaping and statues featured, but also for it's walk-ability. There is a trail that connects up to Friendly Center so you can not only walk around the park but go right up to the shops or grab some lunch or Starbucks all on foot. It's a beautiful, manicured...

When everything is in bloom, the gardens are absolutely stunning. This place is definitely for the entire family. You can walk the paths, have a picnic, sit and relax, bring the dog and make a day of it

There is so much sensory distraction, your dog will pause a thousand times, whether it is the past footprint of other pawed creatures, or encounters with other kindred, but you won't get a workout in. I think because of the volume of people in the morning and after five, or on weekends, that this would not be a good place... More

This is just ok to walk around but it's nothing that's super impressive. I wouldn't go out of my way to come here.

We have visited several times to go for walks. No natter what time of year, there is always nice things to look at. It is a special treat though, when flowers and bushes are blooming!
