A beautiful place to come with the children. They can lead the way and discover the beauty while respecting nature. Just be sure to bring $2 for the parking!

This is a great place to do a hike/walk! My husband and I took our 2 year old. Some of the trails are definitely doable with a toddler others are not. However. The variety of trails make it both fun and interesting. The plants/trees make every trail seem unique but it is very easy to make your way back to the start.

We took our children and they loved it! Definitely recommend not taking a stroller as some parts are very steep and the dirt gets a bit slippery but it was a good time!

I took my toddler, able to stroller it with the wheelchair accessible route. Will return maybe solo to explore a bit more.

Beautiful and educational. It doesn’t seem all that big, but I did somehow manage to get myself lost on a trail that wasn’t maintained well. Not a complaint- it was pretty fun following voices until I could make my way back. I always worry about parking because the lost is tiny, but so far, I haven’t actually had an issue.

It's more of a nature walk than an actual hike. Great for portrait photography!

There are many beautiful flowers and other greenery. There is also a small pond with turtles and koi. It's a good hike to do at least once so you know what it's like, however it's a very short/easy trail not really designed to be a workout. Great for kids and peaceful strolls through the gardens.

Beautiful panorama today from the fireroad at the top of the gardens. Clean air and blue skies made this a serene jaunt through a tranquil place.
