I could go on & on but simply put everything about this place is amazing! A photographer’s heaven. Love how they mixed the streams, ponds, & lakes throughout the entire garden. First time seeing a butterfly house & it was great. Laid out nicely & easy access to everything. Very clean & all staff were friendly. The kid’s section was really nice & different. This was our first visit & definitely plan on returning.
We went for the holiday light display and it was amazing. While it was night and we couldn't see the gardens, we were able to access a number of the buildings and really enjoyed the displays. Will definitely go back for a day visit. I was visiting Richmond for business and wanted to be outdoors on a beautiful Spring day with the temperature in the seventies. I searched Trip Advisor and saw these gardens recommended. I'm so happy I went and will definitely visit again. I would love to see what it looks like in April as things are just getting ready to burst! I wanted some exercise and had plenty of space to walk for almost 2 hours.
