Small, but lovely area with many varieties of plants. Nice cafe area too. Took many photos. Free parking. If you are a member of any botanical gardens this one is a reciprocal for you. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

If you are looking for a place to hold a luncheon, or party, look no further! It's magnificent grounds are captivating. I was there for a wedding shower, and it was a beautiful setting. Not private though..there will be people walking around.
