We walked to the Garden from a nearby home. We arrived around 11am. It was a beautiful day. It is free to enter and tour the grounds. There was still plenty of color to be found, and the sun...

Small garden but very nicely done. Some shady areas, but also very hot in the sunny areas so plan your day accordingly. Small parking spaces, but we found one in the shade so that was nice. Indoor building had AC, gift shop sold seeds for some of the plants and they had a large selection of nice gifts for the gardener in your family. Beautiful place. So many butterflies and loved the history of the cabin!!
It's free to come to the botanical gardens here and they have a lot. The sculptures were stunning and I was very impressed by the nature walks! Their trails are well maintained and labeled properly. The plants have educational plaques so you learn a lot here too! There is a library, gift shop, plant shop, and classrooms here as well with very friendly staff. I highly recommend for anyone in the area!
