  • If you think this is just a tiny butterfly garden in the middle of town, you are in for a surprise! While it is true the garden is the core attraction here, there is a lot more to discover. There are a few trails leading from the garden to the river bank, where you will see an antique aqueduct and walkway. I have been here several times and I had not realized about this. The various trails are excellent and easy to walk (except one that leads back to the garden which is slightly difficult). Do not miss out on this place, it is a great way to escape the noise of town without leaving it at all!
  • The garden is an oasis of greenery and tranquility in the middle of the city. Great place to sit and ponder while being surrounded by some of nature's most beautiful and graceful creations.
