No maps. No signs.Paths not clear. Hence we found very little of interest and we did not stay long. Hardly a botanic garden.

It was nice for 1/2 hour stroll on a sunny Sunday afternoon, but I had expected it to be a little bigger from looking at the maps. The boardwalk is lovely and peaceful.

This was a nice place to take a walk, but we were expecting more. I photographed the map for a guide but although I am a good map reader, the map did not seem accurate. If you are looking for a place to take a...More

This is a nice tranquil park/garden with no admission charge. Mead has several ponds and a boardwalk area, and near the entrance of variety of plants in a garden setting. People were fishing, walking their dogs, and a wedding was about to begin. There is...More

I think you can. There's a pretty trellis with pretty flowers around it. It's on the left side after you enter. Also has a little courtyard with some statues that would be nice:)
