Me & my family took my mother here for Mother's Day. It was a beautiful day out and the gardens were beautiful. However, since it was Mother's Day it was rather crowded and parking was hard to find. The roses were beautiful and in full bloom. It was a really nice place to take the family if you are into these things. Its $7 for admission plus additional fees for any guided tours. I recommend this place around April/May when the roses are blooming. We were a little late for the camellias as there were not more flowers. They have a restaurant and other snack vendors if you get hungry. They also have a marketplace to buy trinkets and other house decorating items.
Beautiful place! During the times of covid is a good way to have a nice afternoon watching the sunset. Is not crowded
