Nice Gardens. Always in a state of becoming. As I suppose a University Garden should be. Even so a great place to stroll, gather ideas for landscaping. And just meander alone or together. The playground is a nice example of what a natural play place could be.
On display are a huge variety of Native and non-Native, non-invasive species, plus a display of various kinds of fruit and vegetable gardens, and herb-lined walkways.
