Accessible only by taking a guided 2-hour tour, the garden also features fountains, a horticultural clock and ponds with lotuses and water lilies. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 2 hours minimum.

Hours: Tours are given Wed.-Sat. at 10 and 1:30, Feb. 15-Nov. 15.
