  • We really enjoyed our brief visit to this park with our son and his family on a sunny Friday afternoon. He has annual membership and this is one of their favorite place to spend quality family time...

  • As of 04/30 Cherry blossoms 🌸 are at peak, so visit as soon as possible if you want to catch them. There will always be other gorgeous flowers after the blossoms come down. Plan to spend at least 90 minutes and note some days they close at 6 pm. Beautiful flowers that can leave you mesmerized and calm you down. The conservatory is a must visit with plants from all over the world (tropics, dessert, bonsai etc). They have a free guided tour from 1-2 pm and also have multiple eateries inside along with gift shops and restrooms. Great place for everyone to come, unwind, enjoy and relax. Students get discounted tickets at $12. There are also a lot of fast food restaurants just outside the garden.
  • A beautiful garden and well maintained. There is something for everyone. My favorite was Japanese Garden and Cherry Lane. So beautiful and serene. Though it was Early spring, but there were beautiful flowers. Greenhouse had variety of Orchids, and other tropical plants. It was a fun visit and I would surely want to visit again.
