Just beautiful and so very peaceful and relaxing. The volunteers do an amazing job in keeping up the landscaping, they also have a fruit and vegetable garden maintained by Junior Master Gardeners!!!

I was there for bridal portraits and it was perfect! The place is beautiful and there are signs posted everywhere with information on the plant life. It is a very interesting and educational place. I would definitely recommend a visit.

This is a place worth stopping for. Beautiful gardens and if having a venue always worth the visit. One of the finest gardens you will visit anywhere in the country.
