It's nice to get away from hot sun to shadow and walk around. Don't need much of energy to walk around nice paths, pounds and things to explore. Kids have fun with Labyrinth path.

This was our second trip to Hopelands Gardens in as many months. It was even more stunning in December than October. The koi and the kaolin pond are beautiful.
