We've found this a tremendous "place of nature" ... "Totally AWESOME!" But beware!!!! One needs to take MANY days to be able to absorb its beauty!!!! Photographers...seasonal beauty all around. I've seen it as the setting for Engagement images, and I believe it is available for outdoor weddings. GREAT Gift Shop. Their building is a wonderful example of architecture & beauty. Landscape Architecture is AWESOME! Monday's entry fees are waived - even better! Do Enjoy!

We just got a membership and love it! It's actually great for bringing our young kids (5 & 3). There's lots of room to run and play. We do the 3-Mile drive and can pull off into a few parking spaces to get out and explore. We love the hedge maze!

Best gardens around. Something to see year round. The tulip garden in the spring is breathtaking. Always something to explore from art installations to maple tapping and live music. If you’re local I would recommend a membership as it pays for itself after a few visits and it’s worth going multiple times during each season!

I have fond memories of coming here as a young kid, and my more recent visits continue to be a delight. It is fun to see all the elaborate gardens and the sculptures throughout the grounds add some variety to the experience. This is a great place for a family outing, a date, or even just a relaxing evening in the manicured landscape.

If you love gardening, art, and nature you'll love this place! It was my first time there and we didn't even cover 1/8 of it. The guided tour is definitely worth the $5. We had an older lady who knew a lot about the grounds and gardening, and to top it off, was quite comical. Bring your walking shoes because you'll want to explore even if you took the tram. It's beautiful there and there's so much to see. Great place to get ideas for your yards. I almost forgot about the sculpture garden, that's pretty neat too!
