Large gardens, easy walking trail, wheelchair accessible for most of it. Cheap price $10 for such a great place. It is easy to miss the entrance so drive slow when you get near it. It will change during the seasons. Very well maintained.

My boyfriend and I went with another couple to see the Christmas lights! The place is magical and is highly recommended. Will be going back this year! Better get your tickets when they go on sale cause they sell out fast.

They are open during the winter, but I am not certain of their hours. You can check their website and it will give you the information on their hours and all of the different events they have planned.
