  • Love it here! All year long there is something to see. From beautiful garden elements to birds. The peacocks roaming freely always displaying their beautiful colors.

Right now the peacocks are quite active and are not shy around people so it's a great time to go. The place is well-maintained, clean and good number of restrooms. If you're a mom of young kids, go at around 10-10:30 to find parking in the front :) It's when the morning crowd is on their way out!
