Wonderful morning visit! Tour remnants of Sugar Mill, beautiful gardens, and life size dinosaurs. Was a treat to see how many Eagle Scouts completed projects on the grounds.

An interesting walking path loop with plenty of local plants to see. You can get a guide at the front and just wander. The human sundial was my favorite part because it is so nerdy. But the giant concrete dinosaurs are a close second. I...More
