  • What a beautiful garden. Expertly laid out and beautiful vistas. Strolled through it twice in opposite directions because we did not want to leave . Just loved it.  more »
  • We were planning to tours the gardens. A very rude employee spoke to us in a demeaning way. We left.  more »
  • We had a great experience at the gardens! It cost about $9 to get in and it’s absolutely beautiful. I only wish I could see it in the fall or spring now too! Lots of walkways and even a self guided tour that you can do on your phones. They also have a small kids area and a nice butterfly house. I’d recommend checking it out if you’re looking for something to do!
  • PURE MAGIC!!! So much pride, love and care is put in to this lovely garden!!! Just gorgeous, beautifully maintained! The Butterfly House is breathtaking! Staff was friendly and sweet! Price of admission is low and goes directly into maintaining the garden! Even the volunteers were awesome to speak with!
