We have visited here many times as we like to look at all of the beautiful flowers that they have in the atrium and on the grounds.

Found this to be a very pleasant garden, it was a hot day, so it looked absolutely beautiful, and is kept well. Nice to see something outdoors.

There are some great trails here for runners or walkers - some are along the lake - all are beautiful. Don't bring your family pet - dogs are not allowed. Paths are nice and can be used by all ages, including larger groups.

It probably depends on the chair, only one small portion is paved but most are fairly flat and have wood chips.
