Very disappointed to go all the way there to find it closed. $50 wasted in cabs. Perhaps if the website had told me it was closed today it would have helped. Stating the hours "may be affected"really doesn't cut it.

Quiet and restful place to sit and contemplate, watch birds! Easy walk. Went with a group and we had a docent give us details about the garden. Interesting, lovely spot to get married in.

Even if this special place is crammed with visitors, it is still worth the visit. A stroll around the lake will make your day.
