  • Best bargain in the area! Lots of free parking, wonderful receptionist who greets the patrons, very decent entrance fee (consider making an additional contribution) , a fictional kids area, and speaking grounds of manicured lawns, ponds, and gardens. The waterfalls were very cooling and aside from my fear of snakes and gators, I enjoyed over two hours on the grounds and would have stayed longer had we not obligations.
  • I have an annual pass here and come all the time. My dogs love it and the area is well maintained. They are constantly doing upkeep and all the flowers/plants/trees are beautiful! So nice to just go and enjoy nature. Plenty of places to sit and just relax in gazebos/benches. Dog friendly is my favorite thing about it though! The check in people have always been super sweet.
