The gardens are the best. I walked through them every day my junior year to get from Central Campus to the quad and it's a very relaxing, beautiful way to start/end the day. It's also nice to just hang out in the gardens with friends on a nice day. There's lots of different sections, so be sure to do a full wander.

Great spot for a picnic lunch or afternoon stroll. Peaceful and tranquil. The gardens are free but you must pay for parking. Get there early or go during the week because the gardens close at 3:00pm on the weekends, for weddings.

Beautiful! We could've spent all day there. The grounds are expansive with 3 separate type of plants and flowers. My husband and I loved it and wished we could've spent more time there!
