The first thing which struck me at the entrance gate was the sign that said beware... More

Incredible for a County maintained facility. Extremely well kept and great imagination in design. Tragically, portions of the garden were destroyed from flooding by Cypress Creek. Open portions have been wonderfully restored. Absolutely must see!

When we did call to check yesterday, the person on the phone was unpleasant and unhelpful! However, it's worth checking anyway. I'd allow... More
