Exhibit in the gardens while we were there featured some amazing Lego(R) sculpture. The sculptures were scattered throughout the garden as if the gardens weren't scenic enough!!

Similar to other botanical gardens but very peaceful. Lots of variety of flora with name cards and other information. Good ideas for gardens in a desert environment and very scenic. A pleasure to visit.

I went in the vendor gate so the line wasnt as long, but I saw people at the other gate about an hour before it opened. There isnt a bad spot in the house, though.
