been going since I was a child
This is a lovely local botanical garden. Entrance is free (although the butterfly exhibit and the winter light display do cost money). A couple of years ago they made an additional parking lot, which is good because the gardens are popular. People come to take prom and engagement photos, and even get married in the gazebo.
There are ever changing display gardens, a wisteria walkway, a rose garden, pools, hedges and rolling grounds dotted with trees and including a lake with a Japanese style roofed pavilion, from which you can see LOTS of turtles in the lake below, along with swallows flying over the water. Of course the conservatory/greenhouse, visitor's center, gift shops, restrooms, water fountains. There is even a labyrinth at the far end of the property.
The gardens are beautiful and there are lots of butterflies in the summer. I often go when I feel like taking photographs and want somewhere close. Just really a great resource - you will see people of all ages and nationalities enjoying the flowers and the grounds.
