We have been to this garden before in Spring, when it really sparkled- but loved it just as much this morning, when the trees starred -and the Japanese Garden was particularly lovely. The garden is a great example of letting go imperfection, even though it’s...More

Not world-class, but a really nice place to spend a warm Autumn afternoon. The park is well-designed, with winding paths, small lakes, plenty of benches in sun and shade. There is a good Herb Garden at the far end with helpful signs. The main buildings...More

I really can't give the BBG less than a 5 rating because it's in a sense a seasonal venue. In the Spring you'll have all sorts of plants in bloom, as well as the cherry trees giving you a very impressive display. Of course, there...More

I swear that the gardens just keep getting better with every season. I walked the gardens in the beginning of October and there are still things blooming here. The pathways were lined with colorful fall blooming flowers by the fountains and the bees and butterflies...More

What a day!! We were fortunate enough to visit the gardens during their Chili Fest and it was an absolutely wonderful day. Tons of vendors all over the place with hot and savory salsa, spices, dips and spreads. Terrific music all day on two (!!)...More
