  • My wife and I have walked through this garden when it’s been in full bloom, but never in February when the trees are bare and the plants bedded down for the winter. Today was a peaceful quiet walk...

  • Very good park, different levels of beauty. Not pet friendly thou. Bathroom was very ancient. Interesting experience.
  • Love this garden. Come every few weeks and see the ever changing scenery as a colorful profusion of spring blooms arrive and give way to summer greens followed by fall yellows, reds, and browns. Just be aware of the muddy grass section by the rock garden.
