The garden recently underwent a significant renovation. The design of the grounds is as beautiful as the plants! Great for a visit to the garden and great nursey to pick up cactus, succulents, and the like on your way out.

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.
