  • Beautiful botanical garden, lovely layout and design. The greenhouses are very impressive, with a phenomenal collection of interesting orchids and other tropical plants. I did find the areas of manicured gardens to be slightly more limited than other gardens I've visited, though one area was closed for a private event, so that may have influenced my impression. Overall, a lovely garden to visit.
  • Beautiful! My kids love to visit. Very child friendly and great children's garden. Fun play fountain during the summer. Just be aware that they are Very strict about you bringing in food. Also, the food they serve is good but expensive.
