Our friends and I stopped here to catch a break after biking all day. It’s such a beautiful place to visit. The park is very well maintained. It’s very peaceful. All the plants and flowers are so lush! No dogs allowed though, understandably so.

What a lovely garden for the size of this city. Well maintained. Many different types of display gardens. Every plant is labeled so you know what you are looking at. Easy access from the river path or the street.

I love going here when they offer free musical entertainment. Its a lovely place you can reach by bicycle if you like. The scenery is not only relaxing and quiet, but the occasional music venue is entertaining. Something nice to do once and a while.

We got to the park by riding electric bikes. Upon arrival to the botanic park, the flowers and birds were beautiful. There are staff and volunteers at the park that share their knowledge and are eager help you get the most from your visit.

Benches placed strategically to be enjoyed with conversation, silence or a good book. Convenient and...More

We spent about 2h with a 4 & 7 year old. Lots of interesting things to see and investigate. Adults only would plan for an hour.
