Spent the whole morning walking through the gardens. Places to sit if tired. Very pretty Chinese garden area. The insectarium was interesting. Bugs and butterflies from all over the world. Overall a nice attraction.

Wow, this place was amazing! So many different gardens/forests/paths/ etc! It was absolutely beautiful! Our favorite part had to be the Chinese garden, because of the wonderfully designed buildings, ponds, and waterfalls. We also loved the Roserie and the Japanese garden. Everything was beautiful, so...More
