This free activity has 14 areas to explore-different types of gardens on a beautiful estate. Take a few hours to explore. Picnic facilities are avail at the adjacent state park. Flowers were still blooming in sep and it's very spacious and beautiful. This is a real jewel thanks to the taxpayers!

This place is fantastic. Beautiful flowers and landscape throughout the year. Gorgeous to take wedding and prom photos. There's also trails for hiking or walking. No dogs allowed within the garden areas but the outside trails are great for that.
