Among the 26 different gardens here are the three-island Malott Japanese Garden, the 5-acre Evening Island, and the new Grunsfeld Children's Growing Garden. Three big greenhouses showcase desert, tropical, and semitropical climates with beautiful and fragrant flowers blooming year-round. Special summer exhibitions (admission fee) include the Model Railroad Garden, a 7,500-square-foot garden with 17 garden-scale trains traveling around nearly 50 models of American landmarks,
all made from natural materials, as well as Butterflies & Blooms, a 2,800-square-foot white mesh enclosure filled with hundreds of colorful butterflies interacting with plant life.
