This was, for me, the highlight of my week one of vacation 2019. We made two trips down to the park to take pictures. One evening and the next morning. Well worth both trips. The collection is a part of a private collection too large to be displayed entirely. Major Credit to the people who do the work to share the place with the world. Back to my personal experience The area is about 6 concrete ponds or tanks molded into a few acre area. Good footing and paths divide the displays and solid fencing to keep wayward photographers from going in the water. I was thrilled with the variety and colors presented. Two notes I will offer for first time visitors 1. We parked on the street, not sure how welcoming or not the church across the street is. 2. The place is open at night also, but the light is pretty one-sided towards the bandstand area. Photo ops after dark will require you to bring auxiliary light of some kind.
Surprisingly awesome (and free) stop! Open everyday in a public park, this internationally recognized waterlily collection is a beautiful place to explore and relax. It's small enough to walk through in 10-15 minutes, but you will probably want to plan on a slightly longer visit to appreciate the beauty and tranquility it has to offer.
