This is really at its best during the Christmas season when it's all lit up with lights and seasonal flora and fauna. Right beside JJ Bean so you can perambulate with your choice of caffeine delivery system.

This little garden holds quite a lot of interesting plants in a variety of settings. Loved the history behind the gardens (created as a community gift by a distillery that used to be on the property). The distillery is gone but the garden remains. Lovingly cared for by staff and volunteers, I always like to drop by when I am... More

Bizarre location, not very wild. Sort of a has been place. Worth a stop if you are passing through on a long trip but only for a quick stroll. I was disappointed the first time I went and been hoping for much more.

The gardens use to be well maintained and lovely to walk through. In the past year or more it is a pretty poor showing. Not well maintained and not many interesting or colourful flowers. Not worth the time to go there.

We usually walk through here during Christmas to look at the lights. The garden itself isn't very big so it's perfect for families with little kids who don't like walking.

We always pop in around Christmas to see all the lights. It's a nice peaceful walk though. Very nice throughout the year as well. Grab a coffee and lunch from the local shops and have a nice picnic. My 2cts, Hope this helps.

Good place to walk through year round next to shopping area, Christmas time it is lighted up and allot of special arrangements, and at that time there is a donation, otherwise usually free to public.

My favourite section is the Japanese Garden - when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. The petals fall on the water feature, giving a wonderful sense of calm and peacefulness. Being a local, it's easy to stop by and wander the gardens for 15 or 20 minutes ... a hidden oasis - always rejuvenating. As a tourist attraction it's not... More

The park is uniquely located at the corner of a retail center. We thought we were in the wrong location when we first drove up. The park is not overwhelming in size, but we can appreciate what a nice diversion it is for those who live in the area. The hardscaping was extensive and you can sense that they are... More
