I knew this Botanical garden has a long history behind it; the lovely tree specimens (all beautifully pruned and in flower) made it worth my spring visit. I could feel the love that goes into this garden, despite the first impression of neglect. I would...More

The garden is beautiful and it has lots of different and exotic plants, but almost none are labeled. It was completely deserted, but that was part of the charming experience. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of peace, quiet and beautiful nature...More
