One might not think of a botanical garden as family friendly, but this one has stuff that will interest children. Several exhibits have hands-on learning for children of all ages. Be sure and bring the family during Christmas time. It's extra-special!

My grandchildren had a grand time at the botanical gardens. The Christmas theme was snowmen. The children were given a picture of all the snowmen that they had to find throughout the gardens. The gardens are always beautiful every time we attend.

This conservatory is wonderful. We enjoyed our stroll through the various rooms. The place is small but well kept. We had fun playing with the interactive displays.

I absolutely love taking portraits here as well as nature photography. Every corner is different yet they all work well together. Always have this place in mind when I want to relax as well.

The Conservatory changes things up regularly so it is fun to visit a few times a year. One trip through was to enjoy butterflies. Another time was for a seasonal display. It was relaxing and not overly crowded on the day I went.

I would call the Botanical. When the butterfly exhibit is there, all are in a tent. The butterflies do land on you. Anytime we have visited there has never been a line to enter the butterfly tent.
