  • Beautiful gardens with peaceful walking trails and gorgeous seasonal displays. The spring daffodils and fall maples are highlights for me. Membership is basically worth it if you are going to go more than once a year, though I wish the garden would stay open year round for members since it is a great place to walk. I also wish there were a few more good options in the cafe, but that’s a small issue overall. Try to visit on a weekday when it is less crowded.
  • My wife and I bought 2 for 1 season passes and will buy them again. We love walking through the gardens as the seasons change. Great for a day date and to get some exercise.
