Kanapaha Botanical Garden On Father's Day
Fathers out of town and local ones too, enjoyed the soothing sounds and pleasant sights of the Kanapaha Botanical Garden with their families today.
The garden celebrated Father's Day by offering free admission to fathers.
The site which opened up in the late 1970's doesn't just showcase plants but water falls and streams as well.
Ed Hunter who was out there with his wife and daughter today says the extensive water garden is his favorite attraction.
"The water features that are right behind us, i am a science teacher at gainesville high school and is just a really cool part from the park because the water comes from the Kanapaha Waste Water Treatment Plan and shows how we can reclaim water to make better use of our water resources."
