Swan Lake Iris Gardens


See all eight species of the world's swans at Swan Lake Iris Gardens. The 150-acre park also showcases Japanese irises, magnolias, azaleas, and seasonal flowers. Signs help you to identify various butterflies and caterpillars in the Butterfly Garden. Plants (some of them edible, though sampling is not allowed) and flowers in the Chocolate Garden all have a chocolaty look. Visit during Memorial Day weekend for the Iris Festival. Also popular is November's Fantasy of Light show, which runs through the holiday season and features one million lights illuminating the lake.
