South Park is worth a visit. To be clear, the facility is not large, but it is interesting. First, the conservatory buildings are well preserved given they were built in the 1890s! Second, the displays are varied (rain forest, desert, herbs, orchids, vines). It is...More

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.
