A wonderful European style garden. Great place to go for a stroll or have a picnic. Definitely a place I take out of town guests to.

They actually have special lights in parts of the garden, so I'm not sure why it closes before it's dark.
A great garden. Well maintained. Statues spread across the garden. Great for quiet stroll or hanging out. A covered area for private events and great backdrop for weddings. A must see when in the area.
