  • Very pretty and relaxing. I suggest at least an hour to just chill and enjoy the water. We saw a deer and several herons. Very cool! Nice staff. There is a delicious Armenian casual dining place nearby...great for quick lunch or dinner.
  • Botanical Garden Parking is $25 weekends is $29. Great place for photography. Specially species of flowers. You can also buy seeds in the store. At least 30 good locations. Mini Train Tour is also available if you don't want to walk. Nice place for events and weddings. Carry an umbrella if rain in forecast.
