  • I've been to a number of Botanical gardens in several cities but this one truly stands out. Located in the middle of the forest and also along the shore you can get lost walking through numerous paths and trails. A huge area is dedicated to kids, my 3 year old loved it. This garden also features some interesting sculptures adding to the appeal and marvel of this place.
  • We had such a nice visit here! The grounds are beautifully kept, with lots to explore. Although I was not there with children, I noticed that they had nice activities for children to take part in, which is a nice bonus. They also seemed to be working on expanding the grounds, making it bigger and better in the future. Really lovely.
