It was a bit muddy on one side but really good for dogs!! Great for them to Jim in the lake!

Truly a sight to see. It is hard to imagine these sculptured garden were once a limestone quarry in the 1800's. The pictures don't do this place justice. The design provides color and landscape texture at all times of the year. They even do a lighting program at night to bring out another design often overlooked in true landscape. Don't consider this a tourist trap. It truly is something to see to appreciate.

Really nice trail! Right now the part of the trail closest to the creek is under restoration.

We looked for Samwise who we were sure had found a perfect hiding place.

Nice stroll if you want to walk to water. Restored beach and dock area at farthest end. Lots of dogs, wide age range of hikers.

this is a place to see...the walk way is well maintained and the views are breathtaking. There are a few spots that can get congested with people stopping to take photos.

The trail was nice, but it was busy with people who where swimming in the lake.

Flowers lovely as usual. Not too busy.

Nice easy trail with only slight descent on way to inlet. Lots of historical cement foundations of old cement factory. Beautiful flowers popping up and beach offers picnic tables and lovely beach. My recording was only for one way, forgot to set it.?

Nice little trail. Gets pretty busy during the summer with people going to swim.

Lots of trails all over this hill. Nice view from top.

Most beautiful gardens I’ve walked through. Could have spent all day here, and pretty much did. The symphony was practicing while I was there, so it was an out of this world experience.

Worth paying a little extra for a season pass, and going several times to get your money's worth. Absolutely wonderful gardens, fantastic array of flora. The rose garden is marvellous, a good chance to smell an incredible assortment and pick your favourites for your own garden!

Beautiful walk around one of the most spectacular gardens you will ever see. Not to be missed if you are in the area. Sunken Garden is my fave.
