A beautiful place.

This is lovely and can be seen either at leisure or quickly. It's right in the heart of town so you can do other business too.

I rated this garden based on size as compared to other botanical gardens I've visited. While some gardens could take hours, an hour here is sufficient to take in its beauty. There is ample parking and it's free, so that should be taken into account as well.

Weddings, Reunions or browsing the grounds, you will be satisfied with the helpful staff and large variety of plants. Unusual plants, raised vegetable garden and don't miss the spring tulips, trees and shrubs. I have attended their American Red Cross Blood Drives. Beautiful setting. One of my go to places for peaceful relaxation.

The grounds are fabulous as are the inside setup. Multiple french doors open onto a plant filled terrace. If you have the $ this is the place to hold your event!

Nice place to visit. Still being expanded, but it seems off to a good start. There are a number of interesting and well labeled plants and flowers to see, along some nicely designed paths. Good parking area with scenic trees and shrubs all around it, and the admission is FREE! There seems to be room for it to grow, and... More

Stopped here to find some Geocaches and it is very beautiful... just small. They have plans to expand the gardens and when they do.... look out it is going to be fabulous! The hall they have is gorgeous and would be great for a small to medium wedding or party.

WOW. Free Admission. A peaceful place to meander thru. We enjoyed looking at the variety of plants and learning some new things! Fun to discover a variegated pomegranate tree, blossoms & fruit. Enjoyed all parts pattern, perennial, annual, kitchen gardens, etc. Very classy gift shop. Looking forward to the expansion to the gardens. Hope to visit again!!

I love to part at the Botanical Gardens and walk to church across the street. After entering, you can see many plants right around the parking area, but walk behind the activities center to find the water feature, a picnic spot and see if you spot any wildlife while you are there. Birds Squirrels, and the occasional deer.
