This little gem isn't open all day, however it's worth taking the time to visit. We spent a very pleasant 90 minutes taking in its surroundings and the koi Carp pond was superb.

This is a treat. Wide range of all things botanical. Different themes from different continents, including a British style Orchard. Donkeys and geese. Water lilies, cactii and tropical flowers. A wonderfully expressive red flower. Good for 2 or 3 hours.

A nice place to while away an afternoon, but not a world class botanical garden. The collection was interesting and well thought out, but the upkeep was not top notch. This is a great garden in need of additional funding, but the current state is...More
