This was a great free activity. Lots of flowers, a cute children's area, and a gorgeous Zen garden. A great way to spend an hour and a half.

I enjoyed it a lot. My 12 and 14 yr old liked the koi pond. For a quarter you can feed the fish. I loved all the plants . I would go again giving the chance.

If you love gardening this is the place to go. It's small but very pleasant. We walked around with our dog and enjoyed looking at the large variety of plants.
