I really love this place.  The first time we went we upgraded to a yearly pass, and have used it 6 times already.  I like that they change out the flowers so there is always something blooming, but I really LOVE (yes LOVE) the fact that I can bring food/drinks and have a nice little picnic with family and friends.  We have spend some great all day outings at this place and plan on doing many many more.

LOTS of open space to let the kids roam around, and everything appears to be kid friendly for the most part. And the gardens and the DeGoyer House are amazing. Right now they have a HUGE pumpkin patch and pumpkin princess castles. Oh and they have scavenger hunts for the kids at the info desk by the entrance. Get them! It's a great distractor for the little ones. TIP: Get there EARLY. Like when they open. Otherwise y...
