  • What an awesome treat. I'm not sure if this is a popular destination but it sure should be. Especially considering it's free and open to public. A colorful escape in the middle of Madison. You could spend several hours just taking pictures and admiring of all the vibrant plants you see here. The gardens were fantastic. The trails were okay and well I'm not sure about the pond thou lol
  • Pretty as heck. I haven't been there in the fall, but if summer is any indication, it must be beautiful. A must-visit for local nature lovers.
