There is an endless walk of interesting exhibits. From snakes to tropical birds to all varieties of tropical plants. And on and on. Check the web site but certainly worth a couple hours.

Visited on a cold windy January day so not many flowers to see in the wild. The orchid house had some beautiful blooms. There are nice trails that take you out to view the natural wetlands. The rose garden looks to be in very good shape for the coming spring blooms. I liked seeing the various types of cactus and bromeliads.

We stopped by,but because it was cold we were told all animals were inside and put away. Flowers not in bloom this time of year. It was nice of clerk to tell us this and we did not waste time or money.

We were unsure of what we could do with it being so windy but we spent a good 1-2 hours seeing all the reptiles (iguana, lizards, turtles, snakes); birds - cockatoo, parrots, conyers, quakers, etc, orchids as well as wild water fowls. Yes both the humming birds and butterflies weren't in season but we did see some wild butterflies. The orchids were very colorful and wide variety. Volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable. Gift shop has some good items that weren't the run of the mill. Worth your time and money.

We went to see flowers & walk. This was a very nice place to relax & see flowers & birds. We were disappointed that the butterfly display was closed for season thing it would be indoors one however was really pleased with bird collection & show. The bird show was really laid back & personal so was the highlight of our visit. We really enjoyed orchids display and walking around grounds. Beautiful setting & only negative in setting is busy road on one side - we really enjoyed day walking, viewing birds & plants.
