Visited in mid September and the gardens and blooms were amazing. I wasn't expecting much in the way of blooms as fall was already here, but the gardens were full of blooms and very impressive and beautiful. Easy walk and good tree and plant identifications.

This botanic park is easy to walk around! There are many well-landscaped sections that were full of colorful wild flowers when we visited in May. We were able to view an osprey nest from the park! Close to the river.

We spent about 2h with a 4 & 7 year old. Lots of interesting things to see and investigate. Adults only would plan for an hour.
