Fun to see the seasons change in this garden walk! New blooms surprise and delight! Additional Trails cut through the conifer grove, or down by the soon-to-be restored duck pond. I like to return as the garden looks different each time.

Thanks to the All Trails app for introducing me to this gorgeous place! When I arrived, the ticket office attendant asked if I was there to do the Hidden Pumpkin Patch Scavenger Hunt. I wasn't, but I decided to do it. Suuuuuper fun! You really see the place that way. A lot of love and care went into that.

Two things: somehow my phone led me to the back service entrance, and the cell reception was bad, so I had to guess my way around to the front entrance. Got there easily enough, though. Also, the price of admission was $9, which I thought was too high. If I lived closer, I'd be interested in buying a membership that they were advertising, because I want to go back SOON! I was only there about an hour, but I could spend weeks!

It was a nice time with my family. My children enjoyed the flowers and searching for the dry lake & creek. Wish they had more street signs. Great walk!

I've loved this garden since I was a child! It's a beautiful place to explore especially if you're looking for a short walk that's not strenuous.

This is a great, all paved trail for people looking for a nice stroll, children, or elderly people. There are flowers from different landscapes along the way.

It's nature, right in your backyard.
If you are looking for a gnarly trail to conquer, this isn't the place. But if you are looking for a pleasant nature walk, it's hard to beat, since it is but a mere 10-15 minute drive from home.
A terrific place to spend a couple of hours outside, without having to get all geared up.

It would help to know the Ticket prices or Entrance fee listed on this App.

It was beautiful throughout most of the garden and it was peaceful and quiet. I even had a picnic in there.However, there were a few spaces that were bare and dry and they looked unappealing. But, I would recommend it to anybody who wants a calm relaxing hike or walk.

I couldn't wait more to get a membership at the gate, on my first visit. and it's worth the money I spent. very beautiful. Now I can't wait to go back again.
