Very beautiful settings. We visited in September which meant most of the plants were not in bloom. (Probably more beautiful in Spring and Summer.) Children under 15 are free. Adults $15. Mosquitoes were out in force. We would have lingered longer if not for that.

We enjoyed visiting the garden in between rain showers, so the flowers were covered with water droplets and made for perfect pictures. The daylily walk was in full bloom and so colorful. The art throughout the gardens was fun to observe. We brought snacks and...More

It will take about two hours to amble through the whole area of gardens. I would say the kids might enjoy the kids garden area for maybe 45 min to an hour tops..🙄
