The children's gardens are such a great place for kids to interact with nature and get outdoors. My children loved the playground features and snake slithering across the sidewalk and various plant materials scattered around. They loved the canopy walk and the orchid house.

Beautiful program. Excellent displays. Wonderful staff. The parking situation was terrible and they should have limited the number of guests

The parking lot was closed when we arrived, but we did notice it opened shortly thereafter. However, we recommend parking outside the entrance and walking in, as the backup was very long. Purchase tickets online before you go and save time. It was very crowded,...More

I attended the Gardens the week of Christmas. It was crowded. After the New Years it’s probably not as congested. Might even cost less?
