I love this place. It’s a nice getaway from the city, with lots of beautiful green space. There is so much to see. I spent the whole day walking through the gardens, galleries, and library exhibits. The main thing that attracted me were the botanical gardens but everything else is a bonus and wonderful to see. I highly recommend checking out the Japanese and Chinese gardens. Exquisite stonework, stunning architecture, and lots of beautiful bonsai plants. There are indoor museums and cafes as well. Get your cameras ready to snap beautiful pictures. There is no shade for most of the gardens, and it can get very hot out. Wear a hat and sunscreen.
