I've been to Longwood a lot and really enjoy it. Its a very easy place to walk around and offers a lot to see. New plants and shows are presented each season. Café food is prety good to. The 1906 restaurant is even better.
Disclaimer: This is not a park. There are no arduous trails of any sort. For more info go to the website.
longwood is a unique place and absolutely worth going too in all seasons. never ever miss Christmas time at longwood at night for the light shows, interior feativities all of course the musical fountain shows. it's a can't miss experience for the entire family.
Countless times. Seriously, my aunt lived near here when I grew up and this was all free. To my parents, this was like a walk around the neighborhood -- we did it all the time. Never knew how lucky I was.
My favorite was the eye. You will understand when you see it.
Now, my favorite is the treehouse. The kids love it.
Longwood Garden is lovely. Some people may not consider it a hiking trail because you have to pay to get in (but then again you have to pay to get into a lot of parks) but it is a very easy trail through very lovely gardens. Easy is good when you are old and have problems walking or when you have to push a stroller. This place is not only beautiful but designed for everyone to enjoy and you can do it at your leisure. Warning though, the food at the Café is expensive and it is best to bring a picnic lunch.
