We wandered around this lovely garden and stopped to smell the roses. What an experience. We also especially loved the Innovative Garden and Victorian Gardens. A peaceful place to spend a lovely morning.

I came here four years ago and enjoyed the gardens. This time we are late in the season but there are still wonderful flowers in bloom and lovely wooded paths to walk. The gift shop had some lovely glass hanging ball so fun!

We volunteer at our cities Botanic Park so was interested in designs in this garden. We so enjoyed our 2 hr. walk through this Historic Garden. There were so many different pathways to take with amazing plants to admire. Perfect place to relax.
