  • 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. My only qualm is the hours are a bit limited--I would love it if they added an hour each way so my family could enjoy it in the morning and after dark. 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.
