An outstanding rose garden and butterfly exhibit are just the beginning. You get a spectacular view of Hershey park as well. A must visit location if one is in the area.

enjoyed the walk through the gardens and especially enjoyed the way they were section off to different sites and views. The butterflies were a treasure to see and enjoy.
