If you haven’t been to the Botanical Garden yet, you are missing a true gem of a garden. There is always something beautiful to see during each growing season and the Garden of Lights display during the Christmas holidays makes this a year-round destination.

If you like plants and flowers this is the place for you. Lots of walking. Go early in the morning ir later in the afternoon to avoid the heat.

Wonderful garden, we take our grandkids there often, they love to play on the 'mountain' of sand. First class Botanical Garden with a great collection. Can't wait for spring and go see the azaleas.

Yes, there is still lots to see even though it's not peak season. Right now the roses are in full bloom, but there's always something wonderful in the gardens, no matter the season. Hope this helps.
