This was a pretty trip to fill in our day for Hot Springs National Park. Easy walking with unique garden sites. Was 15/adult so not free but felt price was reasonable for a couple hour activity.
BEAUTIFUL!! This was a great place to get our daily steps in. The flowers were in bloom, the koi fish pond was enjoyable, and we even were able to experience the peacock in action trying to attract the peahen. The staff was also very informative and friendly!
It was a mostly sunny day when we visited and we walked more than 3 miles around the gardens. It was late February so nothing was in bloom yet, but the gardens are still beautiful. Highly recommend.
One of the best ways to spend an afternoon outside.
Nice and beautiful
