Nice place to go but I expected a bigger garden . Is very tiny and the full price is not worthy. So , the Groupon is a good option .

its a really quick tour, maybe 10 min if you walk slow. Small Pond area and a house. This should be cheaper than $12 per person, I am glad we had a groupon. The park outside was very nice and clean.

It is not a very large exhibit, but it is a lovely place to visit. The friendly tour guides explained the history of the house and the significance of the architecture. The gardens are beautiful.
