This is a nice little place to visit if you have nothing to do. It's also great break from the cold weather in winter! The plants and birds are really interesting, but you wouldn't need to spend much time here.

This garden is absolutely beautiful. It's amazing that it is free. My grandson's favorite part is the alpine region. There are many types of areas. I highly recommend it.

There is an outside part and an inside part of the botanical garden. In the inside there is sometimes a butterfly or a bird exhibition. So look for posters!
