  • What a hidden gem! A tiny hedge maze, an ampitheater, a story walk, lots of cool plants including one that smells like popcorn, a beautiful bride under a weeping willow ... And the details are all there. For example at first you just notice the colorful crayon shaped posts on the fence. Upon closer inspection, you'll see that the name of each crayon is a flower that matches the color. And then you'll notice that the same flower is planted at the base of each respective post. Throughout the garden there are well tended details like that which really elevate the experience. This isn't a cheaply thrown-together thing. This is well thought out and cared for, and it shows.
  • This is one of the best places for a family with kids to visit! There are beautiful flowers and plants everywhere, a train, a maze, a gazzibo, a sand box, a pond with frogs and a little bridge, sculptures and other cute things to explore. Magical place!
