Absolutely gorgeous and well maintained. The plants are gorgeous and vibrant. It is a long hike on multiple trails usually with a like 20-30 minute time and there are multiple sprinklers going off in certain places but as long as you dress to hike then you will be fine. It's also free which is a huge plus to me and comes with maps all along the garden to help you know where you are. DEFINITELY GO!!

Absolutely beautiful place! This botanical garden is very quite, has numerous plants and a quaint oasis. This place doesn't have any entrance admission fee, not crowded at all and inside university properties and maintained by university management. You can bring your kids and this place is safe This place is not big but have the walking trails, pond and Chinese style entrance gate. Will recommend you to visit here

This is a very quiet, and quaint oasis. I recommend comfortable shoes, bug spray, and cold water! The walkways are steep and "hilly," and made of gravel, so this isn't for strollers or bikes. But the pond and the pretty flowers all around made for Beautiful backgrounds for pics! It wasn't too crowded, and it was very clean. If you like nature, you'll like this spot!

I really love gardens. These were very nice and a peaceful place to take a stroll on the University grounds. Free parking is available if you register in the green house. Park in the lot that says it's for handicapped across from the science building. The spots are adjacent to the greenhouse.

Not as lush as it used to be due to discontinued use of irrigation system. But still worth the time. Trails in good condition. Greenhouses worth the time as well. Excellent staff always willing to answer questions
