This is a fairly new garden, opened in 2001. It covers 80 acres with more than 20 specialty gardens and plans for expansion. About 5 miles of trails wind through the gardens. A narrated tram tour is included in the admission price.
The tram is accessible. The paths (about 1.4 miles) that the tram travels along are smooth and paved. The other paths are a combination of gravel and packed dirt. The terrain is hilly and wheelchair users may need to have help on the paved paths as well as the unpaved paths.
Follow the signs for RV/bus parking. Parks as close to the road as possible to avoid a long push through the gravel lot. It easier to stay on the street to get to the entrance rather than using the sidewalk. Garden
