Trip Advisor Lovely place
Apr 21, 2015 by: NYJean from Hamburg, NY
I visited this beautiful public garden a few days ago. It is very family friendly with wonderful trails and gardens. There is also an indoor garden with exotic plants. This is a great place to spend an afternoon.

Trip Advisor Fun and beautiful every season.

Right now all the trees are in full bloom. Magnolias, cherry trees, apricot trees, Dogwood and more. The whole garden is in full bloom. I love to come here to see all the different seasons and how the garden look. I have also been here for a school filed trip about butterflies. Excellent tour guide that got the kids engaged and had great fun. Good games about butterflies that the kids enjoyed even though it rained. We also went seed hunting in the garden while the guide told us about the different trees. My girl loved the field trip.

Trip Advisor Parking tickets not welcome!

A beautiful park I have been enjoying for years. However, the parking has not kept up with demand. We were fooled because EVERYONE was parked on the shoulder. We got a parking ticket. Very rude when they have police all around, who are making NO effort to direct traffic. No sign prohibited the roadside parking! Not a very nice way to treat tourists or a local taxpayer!!

This is a great spot to enjoy the garden setting at any time of the year since the flowers and foliage are always changing. Great place to go to relax and read a book or take a lunch box.

Trip Advisor Natural

Since we were in Wheaton for the first time we decided to check the gardens. It was a pleasant surprise, I didn't expect anything so nice and natural. The gardens are really nice and it's a great place to take a walk and relax. we also could check the first fall colors this season.
