  • Most beautiful garden I've ever seen! Loved our tour guy (older gentleman) very helpful and knew his way around, very much educated. Hope he'll be our tour guy again! Can't wait to be there again. Sister coming in Dec. Will bring her there with us to view the beauty of this gorgeous garden. The most beautiful light during Christmas time! Thousands of lights decorated with a tram they take you on. They also except dogs (on a leash) they'll enjoy it as well. They can even go on the tram! I can't wait to go back. Spring flowers are in bloom and will be going to view all those beautiful colors. It's a must see 😊
  • This place is located right outside Hot Springs about 20 minutes. There are beautiful flowers, plants, woodlands, waterfalls and a Church in the property. It is easy walking or if you don't want to walk you can rent a golf cart. We went in winter and it was still beautiful with seasonal flowers. It can take around 3-5 hrs to walk the park, depending on how fast you walk. They offer season passes. I can't wait to go back. It is easily navigated in a wheelchair.
