We attended a wedding there Friday night. Imagine the sun setting with all the gorgeous flowers and plants around in the park. It was magnificent. The food was very good for wedding fare, and a good time was had by all.

My son and I love to visit the horticulture center! The staff are always so kind, and the grounds are beautiful! We prefer to go out early in the day but not much is open. Luckily they open at 8am and have plenty of areas to explore!

Recently attended a wedding reception here....not what it's written up to be....signs pointing INTO the area are only written on one side, so you can get lost. Parking lot is a MESS, exterior fountains and pool look pretty, but several lights were NOT working. Food was good, but minimal. Need more rest rooms...what can I say???? Just fair..

We stumbled into this while looking to visit the Japanese House and Garden (which is further down the road a few feet). It was in no way a disappointment thou. I think my husband enjoyed it the most because it had so many of the plants that he grew up with back home in Guyana and he was able to... More

Stumbled upon with sheer and utter delight to find ourselves in a warm tropical paradise. Admission is free astonishing in and of itself. And there is no time limit for your pleasure enjoyment. For all five senses will come alive in this Tropical artistic layout of the world's rarest and exotic botanical gardens. The smells and fragrances are literally intoxicating.... More
