A great place to take a date or the family. Beautifully landscaped! A paved walking trail loops through the park. Lots of nice photo opportunities. Small entrance fee and they charge professional photographers a fee who wish to do photo shoots in the gardens.

I have been here more than a few times. Sometimes the park is not busy, and other times it is. Either way, the park is a calm and beautiful experience. I highly recommend to any person or group of people!

Please read the super small script in the discription here. It is closed from October to April. I look forward to trying it again. It does sit next to a small historical building site. That was nice.

This garden is breathtaking for an individual who wants to take time to enjoy the beauty of the garden. The path is short in distance, but highly impactful. Be sure to take the time to enjoy each moment of the garden. You shouldn't rush through...More
