not sure how many miles we covered, but most
of it was shaded with trees so it really was not bad. Quirky's favorite part was the fountains of course, but I think my favorite part was the statuary garden. It had sculptures of famous artists. Be still my art nerd heart.
For those of you who might want to know more about the gardens, you can find information on their website. There is an entrance fee to get in, but for the size of the gardens and add in the splash park for the kiddos...well it was worth the cost. We had an awesome time.
