The year round butterfly house was lovely and very informative. The garden had delightful Spring flowers beginning to bloom. Spring was late in coming to PA this year. The paths around the gardens are a pleasing length not requiring a long hike to see everything.

Visited to see the butterflies. Very small exhibit but worth the trip. We only walked around the gardens a bit since nothing was really blooming yet.

No you can not. These are well maintained gardens so I don't think want to risk killing a plant or grass from dogs.
