My partner and I have been members for several years now and love solo, couples and group trips to the gardens. It is stunning Year-round, and affordable. The cafe offers tasty food, too :)

Had a wonderful time at the botanical garden in July. The grounds are beautiful and there's also many indoor areas to get cool. We had a great time. Most exciting; we got to see the corpse flower right before it bloomed!!
