Known as "The Jewel of the Peninsula," the 87-acre botanic garden features more than 2,500 species of plants, an abundant wildlife and bird population, a small lake and a picnic area.
The gardens within the garden feature roses, cacti, fuchsias, dahlias and herbs. There is also a Children's Garden, Japanese Garden and a Garden of the Senses.
On Saturdays, a 45-minute guided tram tour makes a one-mile loop around the garden and points out historical and botanical highlights. The tours run from 11 am. to 1 p.m. Tickets are $4.
Admission is free the first Tuesday of the month. The garden is open every day of the year, except Christmas Day.
