There were so many employees on the grounds, and no one seemed to be doing anything - while there was much to be done. There was trash on the grounds, path areas to be cleared. Why no signage? Why no history/info? When I did ask...More

Found by using a taxi. Free entery to NP members, we paid $10 each. The map was helpful but did not cover all the plants numbered on the tour. No wildlife seen at all. May be more interesting at other times of the year.

The best place for hosting a function. Centrally located. The grounds are well kept, and easily accessible.
