Nice serene place to just walk around and enjoy nature, plants, and flowers. I would like for them to have more "dog days" for responsible dog owners.

Fun to visit. $12 per adult. Pretty scenes. Cafe on site. Clean restrooms. Nice parking. That's all I have to say but trip advisor won't let me submit till I have typed 100 words. Ugh!!!! Too much typing for a review. The end.

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.
