  • Fantastic space, really well thought out and only improving as the plantings reach maturity. Can be very crowded but not too stressful. Not sure why they turn the stream off after 4pm -- surely it could be run for longer over summer.
  • Beautiful spot to relax. Lots of great areas for kids to run around and play, and it's fenced off from the surrounding gardens. I loved the tadpole pond as well! So fun!!
