Given that we toured it in September after many of the flowers were well past their best-before date, it was a pleasant tour, especially as there were so few people there. The sculptures and water areas are impressive. I was disappointed that the restaurant was not open as I had planned the visit to include lunch.

I will admit, I'm not a flower guy and I only went along because my wife wanted to.

That place is beautiful - I know a lot of the flowers beauty was lost on me but it is a pretty cool place to visit. The was actively being maintained and they do a great job!

This place is a MUST to visit while in town!

Fairly small gardens, nice to walk around but do not think it was worth the price of admission. Rose garden was a little disappointing.

Lovely gardens and a great way to spend some time. You can spent a few hours here walking the grounds and taking in the nature. I recommend making a stop!

I spent an hour and a half here with my 12 yr old and 7 yr old, and we have a nice, relaxing time. For me, I enjoyed the beautiful flowers. The kids were fascinated by the frogs around the pool and the chickens.

We also spent 20 minutes looking at the stick insects they have on display in their small collection.

It's very convenient to get to, right off the highway... but that does come with a downside because you do hear that traffic, which detracts from the otherwise very peaceful surroundings.

Enjoyed an after dinner walk through the park. It is beautiful and very romantic. There is also a place for kids but we didn't go there. Just enjoyed a quiet walk and admired the flowers and different edible plants.

These gardens are amazing. Plenty of activity even in late September but I am sure that in spring and early summer the blooms would have been more impressive. If in the area I would highly recomend this stop. Allow 2 to3 hours.

We visited in June 2019 with a free pass from the NB Library systems. It could have been the time of year we were there, but in my opinion the botanical garden in St. Andrews is much better. This place has a cute gift shop and restaurant, but the line up to at was out the door, long wait times, so we didn't stay for that. There is an exhibit right inside the main entrance with bugs, which was very fascinating although we almost missed going into it. since it isn't labelled very well. It didn't take us long to go around the park, and very few things were actually in bloom. Beware there are a lot of Canada geese (and cute babies) lurking around the property, so don't wear nice shoes and watch where you walk. We met an artist in residence who was very nice, and saw a variety of different plants. Would recommend if you've never been, but I probably won't be going back.

Great garden we'd set as one of our destinations with our trip. Worth spending 2-3 hours to see it all at your leisure. Also have special exhibitions in rotation for a separate admission fee. Worth seeing at various times over same year or to come back from one year to the next.
