Very nice little botanical garden. The stream that flows through is nice to listen to and the place is never very busy. There is a small gift shop area too.

This botanic gardens is a lovely place to spend an hour or two walking around and enjoying the beauty of nature. We visited early in the year before some of the outdoor plants had grown and bloomed, but it was still quite nice.
Loved this place. It was a awesome experience and they even have a live turtle and birds. People were friendly. Learned something just astonishing about the plants around us. Even got a Christmas cactus from the shop!
