  • The Gardens are well maintained and a joy to walk through. There are main paths that are wide and easy to traverse, as well as small hidden paths that cut through the scenery. This provides variety and places to explore and sit quietly. The main gardens are free to enter and quite large. There is a small entrance fee for the butterfly exhibit and palm house, but it's well worth the price. The variety of plants they have is spectacular as well as the amount of butterflies. It is a wonderful place to enjoy the day.
  • Beautiful place to spend a good time with your family n friends. Kids can enjoy in the open space and beautiful attractions around. The flowers, little pond with the ducks etc are a treat to watch.
