The indoor hothouses are small, but very nicely laid it and interesting. The outdoor areas are well landscaped and maintained. A nice place to sit and think, and let the kids explore.

A very lovely place to stroll around and enjoy a beautiful day. May not compare to some larger city botanical gardens but still beautiful.

Walking trails were varied and well marked. More than one entrance with brochures to give information about plants, trees, and places to sit and watch the animals.

Spring blooms in abundance, great structure to the various areas, diverse styles of landscaping. Really liked these as smaller urban type gardens, you will enjoy.

My mother is an avid plant collector and she has never seen the variety of plant species as she did in this greenhouse and gardens. Should not be missed if you are a plant lover
