What to Expect

Absolutely beautiful! We spent a few hours there on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn’t busy. The grounds are beautifully maintained; seeing the blue iguanas and parrots were definitely a highlight. The staff was very friendly and took the time to point out highlights on a map; the gentleman we were chatting with was outstanding and very informative!

Tripadvisor reviewer

We spent the entire here with a 1 and a half year old and a 3 and a half year old. Glad that we packed a picnic lunch. Not very crowded on a week day. Incredible children's garden with play structures with shade options, splash park and areas for pretend play. Staff very friendly.
