There are great plans for this garden venue, but the only part that is done really is the children's area. That's very nice - giant metal apples, cement books, an amphitheater, plants inverting stages of growth, bright colorful things to look and climb on. The...More

Went there with our two toddlers on a Sunday afternoon, and there was nobody else. Beautiful place to relax and let the kiddos run and explore. They had so much fun! Very clean and well maintained too.

As it grows, this will be an awesome place. We spent 30-40 minutes there. The children's section is neat. Sculptures here and there, little things for them to explore, and nature. Very nice restrooms. Free.
