The park has no singular focal point. Instead, it looks just like its name: beautifully landscaped grounds with green lawns and natural settings. Buildings are nestled in pine groves, often fronted by a reflecting lake. Pansies, mums, jonquils, tulips, azaleas, and irises line the drives in spring and summer, accenting the natural areas that make up the park and creating perfect places to bike, run, and jog. Spring is an especially beautiful time to visit; the sandy soil and temperate climate make it ideal for azaleas which create profuse masses of white, pink, and red flowers. Even the park’s signage is tastefully done. Special attractions: Urban park scenes, modern architecture of the famous research labs of various corporations.
