I'm a little torn on my feelings about this botanical garden. It's rather small compared to other towns. We paid $7.00 per person, and we do not feel we got value. I'm sure if I returned as Spring was in full bloom, I'd feel the...More

Hi and thanks for your feedback! March is a slower time of year at the garden, as most of the display gardens are not yet blooming. The day you visited was during our Orchid Show & Sale, so most of the guests were stopping by...More

We really enjoyed our visit. The plants are beautiful and well marked with name tags.Beautiful well placed statues can be found around the garden. The children's area was a nice addition as was the bird feeder area.
