Large garden and well-kept grounds. Interesting statues and sculptures, numerous spots to pause and meditate. Tucked away from the city road so quiet and peaceful. A nice and close by detour off the highway if you have time. Note: some slope and stairs.

A very pleasant place to walk around and reflect. The weather was perfect and the flowers/gardens were wonderful. It was quiet and serene. The gift shop had many unique items that were appropriately priced. Peaceful.

We didn't visit the gift shop. You might try calling the office at Saint Anne-Saint Patrick Parish.
