Things to Do at the Gardens
Open year round, the Gardens are a great place to visit to enjoy nature and observe the seasonal colors as different plants bloom during their season. Take an early morning walk. Invite friends to join you for a picnic at the pavilion. Bring your kids to enjoy the Children’s garden. On a cold windy day, enjoy the warmth and beauty in the Coleman Tropical House.
Wings of Wonder, a seasonal butterfly house, is an 1800 sq ft screened structure containing approximately 500 native butterflies. It is open from April through October of each year. Group tours are available.
