  • Great area and set up but needs a little TLC. many of the information cards are missing or faded. The birds and butterflies were great and some of the orchids were breath taking. Staff was very friend...  more »
  • The staff were good. They did a bird presentation where people got to hold parrots. It was99 degrees so we did not stay as long as we might have.  more »

  • I took my mom (she was a first time visitor), my 7 year old boy, and my 4 month old baby girl today. Although it was INSANELY hot, everything was still so beautiful! The birds are always fun, too. I just really wanted to leave this review because of our outstanding service today! Normy was extremely kind and helpful. We just wanted to recognize her and thank her for being so great! *Side note* The Botanical Gardens holds a super special place in my heart, because my husband proposed to me there 2 years ago!* (I attached a picture :)
  • There is a little bit of everything here.....great roses, flowers, birds and reptiles! The young man getting the food ready for the birds when we were there was very informative on the snakes and their habits or back stories and age. We enjoyed the nice walk on the back part of the property and discovered a lot of birds on the pond. It is well worth the visit. The gardens are well maintained and there are several secret little garden areas that have bird feeders in them OR something interesting like a sculptor. Lots of educational signs along the pathways.
