This park is equally stunning in the fall with the leaves changing color, as in the summer with everything in full bloom. A local yoga studio offers yoga in the park during the summer and there are often families walking, playing, and feeding the ducks...More

This is a small city, so don't expect anything massive. For a small park, it is excellent, with a beautiful fountain, small greenhouse with two or three rooms, small lake and good landscaping. Was free, with opportunities for donations.

This park and conservatory is an interesting place year round and provides some interesting botanical exhibits. Regardless of the season, there is almost always a flowering plant. The place is great for weddings and receptions, and the staff is easy to work with!

The botanical garden is small with a nice variety of plants and trees. The entire park is quite wonderful. There's a duck pond with many ducks, fountains, a playground and acres to just walk and enjoy.

We were too late, but may be able to try again next year. They have many old standard, floribunda and grandiflora roses that are very hard to find. Should be quite a show in June.
