Lovely public garden with free parking and no entrance fee. Lots of beautiful flower. Abundant birds and other wildlife. Nice walking trails. An Oasis in the middle of suburbia. I was so impressed I went to their website and made a small donation.

I've seen the other reviews and I'm sorry they didn't have that great of a time. My family went with little expectations - just an arboretum, but we got so much more. The walk around ponds gave us great viewing of local birds. The walk...More

It's not that big or interesting. It's a good stroll on a nice day. Walking the entire thing will take about 20-30 minutes. If you are a tourist I would advise against coming. It is not spectacular enough to warrant the drive out. There aren't...More

We stopped by for a walk in the garden and stumbled into a Camellia show. The garden is about 47 acres and has a few walking trails, a pavilion, a lake and an amphitheater. There is also a camellia garden and a a wildflower garden....More

Not a single flower in bloom! No signs. Trails not marked. Everything overgrown. Boardwalk falling apart. We left when we saw the sign warning of poisonous snakes in area.

We walked through Mead Garden and it's so very peaceful. Restrooms are available along with picnic tables. Great place to chill or walk around. Surprised at how large the green space is for the location. There's also a community garden attached for people to rent...More

No maps. No signs.Paths not clear. Hence we found very little of interest and we did not stay long. Hardly a botanic garden.

This would be one the most peaceful / colorful part of your trip. It's well worth the admission. I would not recommend going after a Hurricane, since there's a lot of plant damage. This gives the plants to grow strong and be AWESOME for sight-seeing.

I think you can. There's a pretty trellis with pretty flowers around it. It's on the left side after you enter. Also has a little courtyard with some statues that would be nice:)
