Walk rows upon rows of beautiful flowers some of the newest developed. Each plant is identified so you can learn their names or record it to look for it for your garden next year.

This gem is a free and quick stop close to the campus. Lots of flowers and good spots for pictures. Would recommend if you have time. Takes no more than 10 minutes.

I can't say anything original about the location that hasn't been shared. The flowers are great and it's easy to get to. While on a road trip with three kids (4,7, & 10) we stopped by to walk around before going to the drive in....More
