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.

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

We had a good time wandering around the garden. For late summer there was quite a bit of flowering plants. The wooded side of the park was interesting too. . Well marked and labeled. We enjoyed the indoor greenhouse also. Interesting displays.
