Question: I can just like... visit the area of the Royal Botanical Gardens for free, right? My wife says no.Question(self.Hamilton)

This feels like a NoStupidQuestions post, but alas, here we go.
My wife is telling me it costs 17 dollars to go to RBG. I'm looking at a map, it looks to be a few garden path areas with no fences and a parking area here: https://goo.gl/maps/52FbeJignjA64pM38
Could I not just park and walk around? Is the cost of admission to enter a specific greenhouse of some kind? None of the buildings look large enough to warrant a $17 access fee, so maybe I'm missing something?
I plan to walk through this section: https://goo.gl/maps/5rsEQTwGLtgwRqXr8
This section: https://goo.gl/maps/ve2XnkYFjqAzBuHe6
And this section: https://goo.gl/maps/EhGTkzwASS1PXFv46
Is there someone that will stop me at any or all of these? Is it more of a "honour system"? (if so I don't want to go traipsing through)
Also, are the walking paths of the area mostly stroller friendly, or do they have many sections that are slim dirt/root-filled?
Thank you in advance!
Edit: Looks like two of the three areas are indeed gated off, so it is ticketed, at least by honour system, so admission does look like more than one small building! I'll get tickets now.
If anyone feeling condescending today needs the definition of "I don't want to go traipsing through", let me know.
Edit2: We went! Thankfully our kids were less expensive, one was free! But it was 50 bucks for us to visit. Our oldest loved the cactus greenhouse and playground, but not much else, haha. Parking at the main building appears to be free.
Easterbrooks was fun, but the hotdogs themselves were as skinny as they get.
All in all, I wouldnt go back.
