Plants and trees are divided into where in the world they're from. Unfortunately the signage is out of date making it hard to distinguish what is what. Many appear to be missing. Plants there are maintained. Great organized thrift shop on lower level of building...More

Wanted to go to a botanical garden and this was as close as they get. Easy to get to in the city and laid out very nice. Learned a lot about trees and plants and just a nice place to walk around. Not overly big.

First, even though it says that there are office hours, nobody was there when we stopped by (late morning on a Friday). We walked around the tiered grounds, separate sections based on origin of plants and trees. It was interesting to see differences in plants...More

Off the highway and worth the trip. We like to say hello to the Tortoise when we visit. I guess the place is up for sale so it may not be the same when we return. 45 acres and a lot to see.

The grasses is well groomed but the trees in the garden are not well labelled. There are diagrams but they have not been updated. Clearly there was new growth that was not labelled and lost trees that were no longer there. The turn off to...More

There was no one around during "open hours" to provide any info about the garden and there were no brochures, but it was pretty self-explanatory. (If you are a tropical garden fanatic and have the time, make the trip across the island to the Hawaii...More

Absolutely beautiful tiered gardens, small but full of incredible botanical treasures and all in excellent condition. Hard to locate but worth the effort.

It is all outside and there are no gates or prohibiting fences. Just a quiet refuge in the city, so I would say any daylight hours. It was all free with a donation box. We met no other people at all while we were there... More
