Great range of plants and specific houses such as orchid house. Very humid and tropical so a few biting insects when we visited but bites didn't amount to much. Nice gift shop. Fairly quiet. Able to take good pictures.

I agree that morning is best as it can get hot. There are picnic tables in the children's park, but those fill up quickly and people leave their stuff there to claim a table. You can't sit on the grass outside of the... More
