A little gem that even locals do not know much about. Lots of succulents, and cacti. We ended up going there mid-day on hot day but there were enough shades and chairs to rest a little bit. They also had chilled water dispensers. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

If you love cactus and succulents, this is the place to be. Completely filled with all types of succulents, almost too much. Garden includes ceramic statues and other sculptures....a feast for the eyes....and there is a nursery on site. The garden is exquisite....highly recommend.
