The rare, world's largest blooming ant was on display. Fun to see, but plug your nose! Beautiful, wood carved chairs in the children's garden. Careful in the woodland trail-poison ivy/oak around the narrow trail. The wooden train/ city display was so creative-don't miss it.

Go inside and check out all the different plants. Then go outside and wander the property and enjoy the great view. Great for dates, family, or just a relaxing day.

cost is $10 and tram is $3 if you live in the area i would recommend a yearly pass Individual pass is only $35
How long should I plan to spend at the Gardens? Wondering how long it will take to see. FYI, I'll be there in March.

At least 2 hours and it could easily be more. There's a snack bar where you can get light food.
