Beautiful place!

Great place to go for a stroll, the trails are convenient and pretty easy. There are also trails through the woods. They are all marked and you can go hard or just meander. They... read more

Over the years, I have seen a lot of improvements with the walkways and trails. They also recently finished a building and have plans to develop the site further with other areas for public use. They are also very busy with organizing various educational walks, lectures on wildlife, children activities and many other. I am lucky to live within a... More

Great place to go for a stroll, the trails are convenient and pretty easy. There are also trails through the woods. They are all marked and you can go hard or just meander. They are adding new things all the time, which makes it more of interest when walking. It would be so nice to see more plantings of native... More

Our dog loves his walks along the trails of the WVBG! Don't expect it to be a pristine botanical garden with meticulously-tended beds and guides to direct you. Get a map and explore, there are so many different types of trails and gardens. We were here several years ago and it's so much nicer now, with a visitors center, too.... More

Some of the pictures on the website made it seem much more like a botanical garden than it is. Yes, there are some pretty spots but for the most part, it is swamp land with trails/boardwalk cut through it. If you park outside the gate (after 4) it is quite the hike getting back to your car. Again, a nice... More

You can find different activities here if you know the schedules. It is a great place for families with young kids. It can be a great place to observe different types of wildlife, flowers, butterflies, etc.

This is a wonderful place to take an evening walk. There are multiple trails which can be taken and it is usually uncrowded.

Wanted to enjoy an afternoon stroll and give my dog some exercise. It was after 4:00 pm so the gates were closed. Parked at the Tyrone entrance. A bit of a hill to get back to the car. There is a lovely area where there are flowers and sculptures made from natural elements. The majority of the gardens include trails... More

Quiet, beautiful, amazing scenes. If you like to look at flowers, birds, trees and gardens, this is the place to see all. The supporters of these gardens have done a great job.

This is a very nice area. Lots of trails to choose from. If you add them to your facebook page, they have walks and events to teach you about the different plants, trees, and wildlife in the area.
