Our overall experience was rather disappointing. The lights were nice but the staff was not very pleasant and parking was a mess. I know this is not the gardens fault but there was a signifigant number of people smoking as they walked around, they should...More

Best bonsai garden we have seen. Enjoyed seeing lots of monarch butterflies, the orchids, and the Japanese garden. Very relaxing place to visit.

This is a very fun place to go and relax. You have a nice trail you can hike on, not far. It has a great selection of Bonsal plaints. Has lots of beautiful plants to wonder through, and take pictures of.

The Bonsai's alone are worth the time spent here. Lovely grounds. Not large but several nice areas. Inexpensive at $8 per person. Free parking. They also have reciprocal admissions with many other gardens. 60-90 minutes will do it. We see botanical gardens everywhere we travel...More

The bonsai plants are amazing. We really enjoyed the time spent here. It is a bit pricey for the time spent, but I had never seen so many bonsai in one area.
