Spent a few hours here to just relax. It was beautiful, not crowded and I would go again! The gardens were well a maintained, but not stuffy and manicured. The trails meandered and were easy to walk.

I thought that since they said that wheelchairs were available that I could get to places on my mobility scooter, but there were steps into the side gardens and the lake gazebo, and the brick walkway wasn't very smooth - it was almost like cobblestones....More

Such a beautiful place to explore. I've been twice now in late winter/early spring and the flowers have been beautifully in bloom. Don't be afraid to walk off the paths, you can walk all over the grass and explore!

I don't think I went in the right time of year.. I went around October/November And not much was in bloom. It was well kept and still a beautiful park none the less. Might have to give it another chance and update my review. :)

Beautiful gardens for a wedding. Plan early for our door. May was HOT! Caution your photographer and videographer. The bushes are loaded with chiggers.
