Absolutely beautiful gardens. The gardens are taken care of excellently. I took the trolley cart around the gardens with my aunt and you listen to a recording of a guy talking about the gardens and how they came up.

Truly a relaxing place to go to and enjoy nature. It's always a good walk when you go. Many interesting events are held throughout the year to keep it engaging. All the flowers and plants are just displayed beautifully!

The front desk people weren't welcoming or forthcoming with information. The unhelpful employee led us to believe you paid $10 for the conservatory and then $3 to see everything else. This is not true. $10 covers everything except the tram. The gardens are open longer...More

Well laid out with a very good tram tour around. Stopped off at the nice rose garden and visited the quirky model train tracks. The greenhouse is interesting and we enjoyed the woodland walk

cost is $10 and tram is $3 if you live in the area i would recommend a yearly pass Individual pass is only $35
How long should I plan to spend at the Gardens? Wondering how long it will take to see. FYI, I'll be there in March.

At least 2 hours and it could easily be more. There's a snack bar where you can get light food.
