We absolutely love to stroll through the flowers and plants in this huge garden area. Even when the temperatures are high it just seems a little cooler while enjoying the sights along the pathways.

There is a pool that is great to rest on the side. So much to take in! Many varieties of flowers and plants. If your on the bike trails, a great place to stop for a rest.

Definitely worth your time to stop by and relax a few minutes in the Sunken Gardens. The small park has a beautiful water feature, small koi ponds and landscaping.

Stopped to visit the sunken gardens with my wife. Nice and beat garden with koi ponds and a water feature. Worth seeing, but won't take too long.

The end of May is just fine. The gardens are planted so that there are different plants blooming all season. It's really lovely at night too.
