  • It was quite a nice walk in the woods. It's pretty small though, compared to other botanical gardens I've been to, and most of the property is undeveloped woods. I liked the gardens I saw, but additionally I'd like to see a water garden with maybe a koi pond, and maybe a water fountain. An orchid pavilion would be nice. There's lots of room for development and improvement.
  • Very relaxing and gorgeous. If you are a plant lover you will really enjoy it. They have a bunch of different sections you can check out, like an Herb Garden. It blends really well with the natural greenway that surrounds it
