The gardens are beautiful and peaceful during all the seasons they are open. The gardens do not have any flowers but they are not missed. A must see. It is also next to a lake, swimming pool and golf course.

It's a nice little garden near Henderson Lake with a gift shop. It's very quiet. It is overpriced if you live in the city, but definitely a nice spot to take visitors!
