  • Great place to have your meeting! Our group met here this week for our monthly Board meeting and it was wonderful.

Highly recommend!
  • This place was pretty fun and my younger kids seemed to really enjoy it. It took us around 1 hour to walk through and see everything. This place offers several themed gardens you can view. There is also a butterfly garden with tons of 🦋. Everything seemed to be well maintained and the staff was very informative and helpful.
