Our family of three (2 adults and a 10-year-old) had an amazing visit at this beautiful botanical garden and wish we'd allowed more time than two hours. We came for the opportunity to swim in the waterfall. It was not quite what we envisioned, but...More

Very peaceful. The walk to the falls is not difficult. Definitely bring water. I saw people in flip flops but glad I had tennis shoes on to make the walk more enjoyable.
