Only an hour out of the metro area are gardens of sheer perfection! Color themed sections....the all white was a stunner and cooling on a hot summer day. If you like gardens add this destination to your list!

We spent an idyllic afternoon exploring this lovely park on the river. Many lilies in bloom, plus roses and many others. Lovely fountains! Such a relaxing place to walk, sit, read, or rendezvous.

I always love visiting the gardens. They are divided in color-coded sections with a plethora of flora in every section. Marker signs indicate what each plant is. Plenty of seating available. Grand presentation and shade and water aplenty.
