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.

We were very disappointed with the garden. It did not appear to be looked after. It doesn't hold a candle to our own Nature center in Eldorado Park....and our park is free.

This is a beautiful park! Unfortunaly the admission price of $8 is keeping specialy local people away. Why you don't have one day a week FREE ADMISSION.
