My wife and I went here with the camera and went on a romantic stroll. Lot's of interesting gardens and trees to see, and plenty of great photo opportunities. The best gardens surround the two buildings on the property, so spend your time there.

It is hard to believe that this is a county park. The flower gardens are just beautiful. Each garden has it’s own theme, annual, rock, rose, etc. In addition, there are walking paths around the whole arboretum to help you to enjoy nature.

The plantings and walkways are amazing with fountains and Vistas. We like to pretend the Mansion is our home. We had a spiritual practice walking the Labyrinth. You will have a good time here and feel very happy you came
