Much of the garden was closed, but we did the tree-to-tree walk. What we did see of the garden was beautiful with adequate signage to describe what we were seeing. The tree-to-tree walk as a really fun experience and a great activity for families.

A nice place to escape and enjoy the forest. Many large trees and plants to explore and walk through. Go on the tree walk. Exhilarating!
