Has many types of plants and habitats, the guides are very friendly and the price of admission for students is very convenient! Recommended.
De très beaux jardins avec différentes collections de fleurs. C'est bien entretenu et agréable à se balader. Nous y avons passé un moment agréable. more »Very beautiful gardens with different collections of flowers. It is well maintained and pleasant to walk around. Stayed here for a good time.
This place is huge! Even with a lot of places shut down for some construction. I was here easily for about 2-3 hours and honestly if I had been there by myself I would've stayed even longer. I thought it would just be a bunch of plants you look at but it was very well thought out and laid out. There are a lot of interactive moments with signs that say, touch me, smell me, etc. It was a lot of fun but also beautiful to look at. It's great for friends, family and kid friendly.
Amazing place to see. Cherry blossom ❤️ you should go there in spring. Not Summer. I went there in Summer. Too hot and Japanese garden (big part) was under construction. But they gave us the free ticket for next time. Very nice!!
