One of the most beautiful gardens+ you could ever visit !! It’s a wow from the car park to the furthest away point, perhaps walking the board walk !! The building is exceptional and the sculptures...

We went in April before the majority of flowers are out. We went with two teens - they liked the butterfly garden and the sculpture garden was really great. I highly recommend!

This is a wonderful place! The botanical varieties are quite extensive. The trolley was very nice as the sculpture park is very big and we were traveling with several seniors who would not have been able to walk that distance. However you don't get to get out or get up close to the sculptures which is a down side to the riding tour. I was impressed with the many sculptures especially the giant horse. It was totally worth the trip just to see it. Highly recommend!!
Beautiful place! I went to see the butterfly exhibit and it was amazing! There were butterflies flying around all over, they had a station where you could see the different chrysalis for each of the varieties of butterflies. Even though nothing is blooming in the gardens yet, we hiked around the Japanese garden. It was amazing! Definitely going back when they're gardens are in bloom. Highly recommend going here for people of all ages.
