If you love Horticulture or just plants in general like I do, this 38 acre park is an astonishing piece of mastery !!! The way that one part of the park leads you into another into another by both gravel paths and concrete sidewalks is truly a masterpiece !!! You name it, its probably there on display. I took so many pictures that I cant post them all, but I'll try to get the best ones out. It's a great way to spend at least 2 to 3 hours, if not more. It all depends on your interest. I highly recommend it !!!
Amazing and inexpensive to visit. You can stay all morning or all day. Beautiful, other-worldly gardens, amazing variety of plant life. Walk through a forest! The grounds here and deceptively massive and it's pretty empty in the mornings. Take the family here and skip the misery of the big parks.
