Just so relaxing. The grounds are beautiful, pathways easy for all ages and abilities. Went in a weekday, not too crowded. Staff and volunteers very helpful. Love the peacock!

This is a wonderful attraction in Hot Springs especially during the tulip extravaganza and the holiday festival of lights. But, it is great place to visit anytime.

We loved this place for sure. The 150,000 plus tulips were beautiful. We’ll return in the fall again for the fall foliage.

Nicely landscaped with beautiful views of the lake. The many flower beds were mostly tulips and nicely maintained and quite pretty. I recommend an early arrival as the lot filled up quickly.

Very beautiful and so happy to have visited. Lots of walking and ups and downs but have golf carts to take people around that have trouble walking. Few forks in the road that doesn’t have signs so easily lost but in general a must do when in Hot Springs if you like the outdoors, floors, birds and butterflies.
