The regal entrance is a great introduction to the kind of care taken throughout the area - from little touches of sculpture to matching colored glass ground cover. Fantastic respite for quiet reflection and long walks alone.

Nice place to walk in the morning. They have a small putting green for some family fun. Most of the landscaping of flowers was nonexistent due to the cooler weather, but the rest was well maintained.
