This had to have been one of the most beautiful botanical gardens we've ever seen. Our only regret is that we didn't spend the whole day there. The staff was extremely helpful, too. Highest recommendation.

This is a liitle pricey but you could take a picnic and spend the day here. The gardens are large and well set out. There is a tram tour that runs about every hour. The gardens were very pretty a had lots of seating dotted around. Cafe too was very pricey.

At this garden you can walk through beautifully manicured gardens which are labeled throughout. The have a tram which takes you all around the gardens. They have special events and exhibit for the public, a beautiful show and an arboretum which holds exotic plants. They are also open to school tours and groups. A great place to enjoy nature!

I found this a wonderful chance to spend hours slowly walking through an absolutely gorgeous tropical landscape. Such peace and no one hurrying you. There are many benches where you can sit, admire rare tropical plants and lizards of various sizes wondering by, read a book, be in silence. The day I went (a Friday in early November) there was...

I love this place. You feel as if you are in a relaxed, tropical wonderland. It was a joy to discover the many different butterflies and tropical fruits. A perfect place to walk around and take time to absorb nature

We loved it so much, we even got passes. There is a tram that takes you through the entire thing and it takes about 45 mins. It stops at the butterfly house and Cafe as well. The food there is really good. The butterflies are best when it is sunny and they enjoy flying around in the sun.
