I have been to the gardens multiple times. I have also taken the tour of the Mansion and the reflecting pools. Take the family and bring a picnic basket. A great way to spend a day.

This is a must see for nature lovers, and those who like to experience Gods Canvass. There hasn't been one visit where friends haven't had to drag me away at the end of the day. A must see and a joy to behold

A great place to relax at any time of year. Even if you don't like botany the hike around the place will give you some peaceful exercise.
