This botanical garden is very pretty but is not located close to anything else and takes a while to Get to. Not worth it in my opinion, but if you do happen to be close by, go see it. Nice café Floran is located inside.

The gardens are lovely and there are information signs around letting you know what they are doing , plant names and other information. It should be noted that parts are a working project. I visited in April so many plants are dormant outside but the...More

In late March, when we visited, there was little in bloom. It was still a beautiful place to walk through, though. There is a small indoor cafe on the grounds that is beautiful. While it was open in the morning for breakfast when we first...More
