Love the selection of gift ware inside. Oodles of cool stuff to look at and the outside has all the plants, cleverly set out. The animals are a great addition to stroll around with the kids.

Lintons is a beautiful place where you can walk around see the flowers, animals and they also sell merchandise. If you get hungry, there's a small cafe to eat in. Nice place to visit.

This place is gorgeous! Lots to see and do. My son is 2 and he loved riding the train and petting the animals at the petting zoo. We didn’t purchase anything though because it’s very pricey!

Yes! Pets on leashes are welcome on the grounds and in our shoppe, just not in our Garden Cafe (per Health Department guidelines).
