My husband and I had pictures taken together at the Gardens last Fall. It is a very popular area for that because it is very beautiful and has several different areas.

I go to the gardens often for a quiet walk. The paths are mostly paved. The flowers and plants are very well maintained. The outdoor sculpture and art is impressive. There's a good chance you'll see deer, hawks, turkeys, turtles and other wildlife. Also good scenery if you're a photographer.

Well kept trails, very comfortable surroundings. The sculptures are amazing, plant selection is great and encounters with local wild life make this a photography excursion. Enjoy!
