The array and presentation of plants and art can both stimulate and soothe you. This summer's Topiary displays made you think you were in Disney. You can always find something new to see!

I have been a member for many years, and never tire of going there. I have six grand kids ranging in age from 2 to 13 - they all love it. One of their favorites is the model railroad. The parking is free and convenient.
