  • This beautiful garden just adds to the charms of St. Andrews. The garden showcases various types of gardens from kitchen gardens, orchards, perennial gardens, and more. Everywhere you look, it's like a postcard. There is also a children's garden next to an alpaca enclosure. Once a day the alpacas promenade through the garden. My kids loved this little parade. There is also a wooded forest trail and sculptures throughout the garden.
  • What a remarkable, gorgeous garden. So well laid out. We spent over an hour just traveling through all the different floral displays. So peaceful to just sit back and relax in. Was like an hour or meditation.
