We started off with lunch which was very enjoyable. We then had a tour of the gardens learning all about their plants and trees. The tour lasted for about 2 hours.

A great place to visit with your significant other, family or friends. Awesome spots to take beautiful pictures. You can complete the whole self-guided tour in 1.5-2hours. It has a small parking lot. There are bathrooms and picnic areas. 100% recommended.
