A nice botanical garden which has planet from the high mountain environments. Loved the Tibetan temple which is only one of two places in the USA to be blessed by the Dalai Lama. Great place to spend part of a day and relax

This is a really small garden, but the variety of flowers, the colors, and the placement of them were very beautiful. There is a prayer wheel, a small flowing water, and beautiful walkways. There is no real entrance fee but there is a donation request.

The garden is lovely and the flowers and plants change with the seasons. A nice place to take a stroll and relax in the shade.
