  • Such a beautiful and relaxing place. Lots of different paths to see the greenery and flowers. It's a good place to spend the day, lots of little benches to sit down and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

  • I go there a lot for walks on a nice day. Love the way their expanding it. A well kept secret, but PLEASE donate in box near entrance next to events board. (otherwise they may charge entrance fee) Beautiful fragrances in the Spring and gorgeous scenery. I take pictures every time I visit.
  • Great place all year round. Great aromas and flowers in summer overlooking waterfalls. Pets and smoking yet family friendly. Too much shaded area and not a lot of sun gets past all trees and shrubbery. Ducks, fish and turtles too! Good place for wedding pictures and IT'S FREE
