Pictures can't justify this place, you need to see it in person. Would also highly recommending having breakfast or lunch (both are outstanding) at the restaurant, Fresco at the Gardens.

Surround yourself by beauty and tranquility. This little garden is filled with surprises and beauty. My husband and I accidentally found it on our way to Chicago, and couldn't be happier.

The gardens are not only beautiful but very tranquil. You can easily get lost in your own thoughts here. Plan on spending enough time for a leisurely stroll.
