Walk the trail through the woods, browse the gift shop, eat lunch in the cafe, tour the plants in the conservatory, walk the beautiful grounds, come for the music, sit awhile on the patio or take in the ponds and butterfly house...so much to do!

This is a nice place to stop and have lunch on the patio, visit the butterfly house, walk around and look at the many plantings, view the conservatory and say hello to Echo the parrot. My Granddaughters really enjoy coming here.
