Great quiete sanctuary of flowers and nature . Love to go here and meditate or just sit on a bench and absorb the vibe. It's calming and has different paved pathways and lots of different landscapes throughout the different areas. Great photo ops here or great place to read a book. Whatever your likes are, this is a great place to come and relax in the outdoors. The open areas are always well kept, great for a picnic. Love this place
