Good botanical garden for adults - great for kids. Butterfly house was disappointing as not as many butterflies as others I have visited, but very nice overall.

Lovely and tranquil. What made it more fun was the display of scarecrows along the paths. Great children's area for families. Easily walkable.

It will be nice then. Flowers should be in good bloom. Be sure you bring good walking shoes. Garden is very large but has good paths.
