Been going for years and it only gets better with age. Trees mature, modifications and upgrades are always underway and with each season there are surprises. It’s a place that you can’t visit enough in all seasons.

Not Cheap; but, worth the price. We brought our lunch and lunch is also available inside and outside. Be certain to see the Japanese garden especially, the bonsai collection

Even in the winter months, when all the trees and flowers aren't in blossom this place is worth the visit. It's a beautiful space and great for a walk.

We love the garden year round. It is walkable. You can see it and enjoy it in two hours. You have to spend time in the Japanese garden. The vantage of that garden is different and tender from all angles. Best to walk slowly around...More

On the weekends is always busy, but if you go Saturday morning right after they open, is not that busy/crowded & the best part? admission is free. Don't forget to take your camera, bring a water bottle, & wear comfortable... More
