  • What a beautiful garden and surrounding area. The Maclay home was fun to visit and the volunteer was most helpful. I've not been there in the summer, but it seemed well shaded.

  • We were there in a hot summer morning so we didn’t stay long enough to enjoy the whole place. The state park has a lake area and a garden. The view was gorgeous. The lake looks gold under the sunshine. The garden is a good site to play Pokémon Go. It has multiple themed section. I had some unrealistic expectations based on the photos I saw beforehand and that’s why i didn’t mark 5 stars. It’s really a nice garden in general.
  • This is a great place for the kids. The gardens are beautiful and the trails are easily walked with a jogging stroller. The volunteers at the garden building are extremely friendly and helpful. Bring your camera because there are lots of scenic views. There is also a recreation area with playground, pavilions, beach area.
