We enjoy going to gardens whenever we visit a city. This gem had a wonderful conservatory and very nice outside gardens. I would recommend a stay of one and a half to two hours.

These botanical gardens are quite impressive. Everything is well maintained and the flowers are lovely. The staff is also super nice and helpful. It's a great trip to take on an afternoon if the weather isn't too great outside because it's warm and colorful inside.
