What is there to do?

Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center

Greenhouses, demonstration gardens and themed open air 'rooms' are spread lushly around the 252 acres with over 300 plant species on show.

Kids can enjoy the Sensory, Vegetable, Bird and Butterfly Gardens which are designed just for them plus spot the sculptures as they move around the attraction.

The Nature Discovery Center offers a laboratory and some hands on learning experiences.

The Discovery Theatre and Exhibit Hall in the Orientation Center help lend a more formally educational element.
