    Great place!

    Came here around Christmas time and really enjoyed our visit. We could not go in any of the buildings but that’s ok because so many plants were in bloom it was a good trade. Would come back again.

    Great place for long walks

    Great walk and trails to bring a leashed dog. The establishment was pet welcoming and treated my dog like family.

    Best walk ever

    My dog loved exploring. There are dog waste pick up stations all over. While you can't go in the shops, there's plenty of outdoors to explore.

    A beautiful walk

    $5 to get your dog in and access to the gardens and outdoor seating at the Visitors Center.

    A nice way to enjoy the gardens.

    fur baby walk

    This is not a dog park. This is a business that lets you bring your pet to certain sections. It is beautiful and has good trails. You will need to bring your own water and poo bags, none are provided and there is no fenced in area.
