  • Aside from the rose beds and some cacti the real draw is the large expanse of grassed areas to walk through

  • We go there almost every day. My wife walks the dog and I run. Very enjoyable.But it can be so much better if someone with vision decide to do something with it. The possibilities are endless. Will also help to create much needed jobs.
  • Botanical gardens are neat and clean but not as pretty as you would expect from these gardens. None of the fountains or ponds had any water in it so it lacks that effect. The local tea garden are great with a variety of items and service was good at fair prices.
