Not only is the park worth your time, but don't forget to stop in the Bistro. Very charming with a touch of class. Great food, also! (In the summer, you may want to plan an early visit to avoid the heat as much as possible.)

The park was not impressive to me. Better upkeep was needed. There was very little to look at that one can't see in regular surroundings. The gift shop was quite limited.

This park, artist gallery, botanical garden is a hidden jewel! Every Spring when I visit for the last 7 years, I'm surprised and delighted by the expansion and wonderful exhibits and trails. Not to be missed!

We went early on a warm day and had a wonderful time. We were aided by very friendly docents who pointed things out to us in the gardens. They also have a lovely cafe where food and beverages are served and a terrific gift shop....More

We went to this hidden botanical garden and wandered along the paths to view all the flowers in bloom, a couple tortoise munching on lettuce, sculptures everywhere. Very peaceful and well maintained. A true jem.

Yes. The trails are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair, and there are ramps into the main building and restaurant. The gift shop would be too tight for a wheelchair, I think.
