loved this garden and the flowers, roses, and the grounds were perfect, groomed and a great taking picture event!
My husband and I went there awhile ago and we loved it. We went during the winter at night so there was a lot of beautiful lights. I very much enjoyed walking around the gardens, they were a good size to me and there was a quiet a bit to see. They had trains to take you around or you... More
Although December will bring thousands to the RIVER of LIGHTS in this park, this place it not to be missed, by day in the spring, summer and fall.

Lovely Moroccan garden and just a lovely place to walk any time of year. Spring bulbs, early summer perennials, great shade from variety of trees. Despite short budget and fewer staff, everything is well-taken care of and attractive for a Sunday morning walk.

In October much of the plants were on their way to hibernation but it is a well layed out, informative garden. The Mediterranean garden house was especially nice. Good for families and individuals.
Was in town for the balloon fiesta and after reading the reviews on here thought that this would be a nice afternoon. So glad we went. The plants are labeled, nice walking area. the butterfly area is very nice. The enchanted area is awesome, a castle and dragon amazing. The aquarium is right there too so don't miss that either.
The plants are generally labeled. It was beautifully done. The very large miniature train and village was a hit with all ages. A good sized butterfly garden was manned by knowledgeable and friendly volunteers.
