The $2 Botanical gardens are amazing. Such... More

The flower beds and planters on the grounds are... More

Together with friends we spent an hour and a half here. We particularly enjoyed the orchid and bonsai collections, but there are many more interesting plants. There is also a butterfly house and well kept outdoor garden.

My first visit here. Really enjoyed the butterfly house. Greenhouse was great too. Plenty of walking trails, they have a cafeteria also but did not try that. Good place to walk children around. They really need to mark the plants and herb garden so you know what you are looking at.

This is a nice place to stop and have lunch on the patio, visit the butterfly house, walk around and look at the many plantings, view the conservatory and say hello to Echo the parrot. My Granddaughters really enjoy coming here.
