This was a favorite place to visit as a child. The plants are exquisite so take your time to breathe in all the varieties. Make sure to wear your tennis shoes and bring your camera. There are benches to sit and take a break. The old log cabin village is located in the area and is a great place to explore. It is quite small and won't take long.

Gardens are beautiful. Admission is free. Went to a paid homeschool class on learning to use a compass (orienteering). Class was quite frustrating for kids because many of the signs were missing or had been moved.

We have visited several times, it is a real treat to see and explore the gardens. They are not expensive. We took one trip to see exotic butterfly's in the in door amazon built green house, it was worth it. Do a hunt for specific flowers and learn tips, and they have things for children to do as well. Take pictures that day and eat in the garden. The oriental garden is also a real treat as the coy fish with eat right out of your hand and you can feed them . They remind me of dogs ready to eat, and these fish know when a human is there and are ready to be fed. So worth it.
