  • Beautiful park with so much to see. Great trails to explore. Exotic plants. There is something for everyone to see. Today was a rainy day so the pictures are on the dark side. We have been other times when it was sunny and bright. Be sure to walk thru the Butterfly Garden, which is fascinating. They also have trams for a 45 minute ride. Entrance fee is $25 per adult. We were hoping to see the Lego exhibit but it wasn't there anymore.
  • Went on a day trip with my best friend to show her a nice time definitely the kind of place where are you can spend the day commune with nature and truly have an experience. Anyone can go to a restaurant but spending time around nature while having some delicious food at the garden restaurant was totally worth it followed by a trip through the butterfly sanctuary. Parking is a little difficult so if you do get there and noticed there is no parking I will go inside and let the front desk know so that they can open up the back parking in the low lands. If you do park in the low lands you’re better off when it’s time to leave going out through the back exit by the lake so that you can be closer to your car as there is no entrance into the lower lines from the outside without a code. Looking forward to taking my family there tomorrow for the chocolate festival.
