I do the Bird Walks 2nd Wednesdays @ 8 AM occasionally with Jill Peleuses and the staff. Be sure to see the 400 year old great Oak, the Butterfly House in season, the Bottle House and of course, the upcoming Enchanted Airlie Gardens. Spectacular.

Arlie gardens is a beautiful place to walk and see a variety of lovely plants and flowers. Very peaceful. Especially loved the Bottle Chapel. I'd love to see it in the spring when more is in bloom.

I did not see any strollers for rent but there is an open air trolley that runs frequently through the park. It is a beautiful garden. If you go be sure to see the bottle chapel!
