  • My daughter and I enjoyed these gardens on a beautiful Saturday morning and it was great! Her dog, Callie, enjoyed the gardens with us. The many varieties of azaleas are in full bloom, along with many more flowering plants and shrubs. If only I could have one of each, I would be one happy happy camper!
  • Great place to visit, something for everybody. Kids loved the children's area. Covers alot of topics for homeschooling; art, history, art. Best of all it's free. I like to buy Christmas ornaments of places we visit and the lady in the store went into the office and found them for me.
