  • The daffodils had already hit their prime and were dying, but the tulips were up and beautiful. The map was confusing and could have been clearer with names on the bridges.  more »

  • Gibbs Gardens are really beautiful, well worth the visit. The walking paths are clearly marked, adequate parking, restrooms, cafe, and gift shop. Plenty of areas to sit, rest, and relax as you meander through the various garden areas. You could also take a tram to the areas putting on a seasonal show with the option of staying a bit, walking back, or riding the tram. This is a very well run attraction with friendly, helpful staff. Bring a camera to capture the beauty!!
  • A lovely place to visit. So many different varieties of flowers, trees, shrubs, etc. Walk the paths or pay extra to ride trams. Try to catch something at peak blooming. We missed the peak of the daffodils but still beautiful. Cafe on property for sandwiches and salads. We plan to come back in summer to see more color.
