Well taken care of, this is a nice visit. The fountain is very nice and you get a nice taste of the local plants and trees. It is a nice place for a leisure afternoon stroll. About normal cost for Gardens.

Such a beautiful walk through the Gardens! They have a butterfly exhibit too, where you get to walk through free flying butterflies!

This is a great time with children in the butterfly garden, staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The outside garden has a children’s section for hours of fun. Also a lot of hand made decorations throughout the garden.

The area was well-maintained and manicured. A lot of effort was put in to create a very beautiful looking environment. Many different types of plants and flowers, with many bright colors. Even our two young boys (6, 7) enjoyed the visit -- and that's hard...More

Very beautiful. Plan to do a bit of walking as the gardens are spread out in different direction. The butterfly atrium is amazing. Very serene!
