Walking trails were varied and well marked. More than one entrance with brochures to give information about plants, trees, and places to sit and watch the animals.

We had a good time wandering around the garden. For late summer there was quite a bit of flowering plants. The wooded side of the park was interesting too. . Well marked and labeled. We enjoyed the indoor greenhouse also. Interesting displays.

My husband and I had a lovely day exploring and seeing so many beautiful and exotic plants. It was not crowded at all, so we had a leisurely, peaceful stroll through the grounds, buildings and trails.
