  • Not the first time we've been here but it's gorgeous every time. The waterfall is beautiful, don't miss the walkway behind it with the MLK Jr quotes. So peaceful. On this sunny day we enjoyed lounging around on the grass along with hundreds of others enjoying the weather.
  • It was a perfect day to visit the gardens. The weather was beautiful; sunny with a cool breeze. Lots of people were out having lunch, reading, playing with their kids, and even people-watching. Young, older, solo, with company...all were there enjoying themselves. I love the MLK tribute area and the falls.
