We have had numerous photo shoots here by professional photographers and parents taking homecoming or prom pictures. The gardens are beautiful and offer many great backdrops for these pictures. There is no charge to enter or park.

This is a beautiful place to take a relaxing walk surrounded by nature and the beauty of God's creation. I took my young daughter here for some pictures and she enjoyed running around and smelling the wonderful flowers.

No better spot for a relaxing walk in the Magic City. Can't recommend this place enough. Beautiful gardens. Really enjoyed watching the bees & the bee hives by the pollinator garden.

Beautiful grounds, very well maintained. Perfect for pictures, exercise, family. Wanted to purchase a fruit tree but gift shop was closed. Weather was great in September!

We were very pleasantly surprised at how well maintained and pretty the gardens were in mid-August which is not the best season for growing due to the heat. No admission fee.

Each shrub, tree and shrub or flower in the Gardens has a 'story' and each and every one is interesting - some are fascinating! A beautiful place that is a 'must-see' in my opinion.

I believe the gardens are open 7 days a week during reasonable hours. Plenty of parking
