  • We enjoyed just being outside in a beautiful setting! Great place to take our morning walk and see the changing blooms.

  • The visit was on a free day so there were many people, especially in areas with beautiful gardens or architecture. Overall, a beautiful place to visit. There's a gift shop that has many succulents for sale that are reasonably priced. The dining area is beautiful and interesting. There are many open areas with beautiful and calm space. Was I wrong or I heard cicadas singing! They're beautiful! The bathrooms inside the garden are clean and well maintained.
  • What a beautiful magical place. So many places where you can sit and just listen to nature without hearing the sound of cars passing by or too many people. I would recommend to wear tennis shoes as there is a lot of walking to do here. Kids will enjoy it here as there is ponds and a lake with fish. A very beautiful lookout by the lake. I highly recommend to take a weekend trip here arrive early as it will probably take you half a day or more to walk around comfortably all around.
