Free! So far this beautiful botanic garden is free and open to the public. Wow. There are so many different trails and gardens to enjoy. Plus, you can bring your well-behaved leashed dog with you! Such a delight.

KEEP DOGS WELCOME! PLEASE bring poo bags, too, if you bring your dog. If you bring your dog please also bring out their droppings and dispose of them appropriately so other dogs will be welcome, too. This is a “Carry In; Carry Out” park so there are NO trashcans for throwing anything away.

With that said, this park has a great variety of plants and trees to share. While there I found a rose garden and a lily garden plus two other flower gardens that included dahlias and daisies among other beautiful flowers. I’m not a gardener, but do enjoy taking pictures of flowers and really enjoyed the two colorful gardens just off the parking lot as you enter the botanic garden land. They were filled with summer flowers during my visit in August drawing in butterflies and bees. Bright and colorful.

There are many crushed rock paths for people to use and benches for people to enjoy while wondering through the amazing diversity of trees. Benches and other resting areas are found along the crushed rock trails. Further back in the gardens there are wooded sections in which the trail is merely a mowed section of the woods. Truly, there is a lot to enjoy here.

One of my favorite areas is around the pond in this park. There are a couple bridges that go over the pond, plus a dolphin sculpture and wetland borders that draw frogs, turtles, and dragonflies. If you look closely, you can sometimes see fish in the pond, too.

Well worth your time if you enjoy being out in the domesticated wilderness.

Thank JazzyKris
