I hadn't visited the gardens in about 3 years. Really enjoyed a lovely day all round. Arrived early on opening day of the new exhibits avoiding the afternoon crowds, and even a parking spot close to the entrance. Perfect whether and good company always helps too. Finished off with an excellent lunch of roasted veggies and a salad bowl for my vegan friend at the sit down restaurant. A great outing!
WOW !!! What a celebration of light. The night filled with Oooo, fireworks without the loud explosion ! A free flowing of twist and turns that expand colors and creativity across your visionary plane. With so many venues to see the choice is where to start, which way to venture off first. From free flowing water fountains to miniature trains there is something for everyone ( kids love it ) to enjoy. Excitement abound and a colorful back drop of the high rise skyline makes for an impressive setting. There is plenty of parking and they are true to your reservation time. Crowd control is the reasoning for this ( great idea ) process. Snack bars and souvenirs are available as well as adult beverages served. Please arrive early, lines to get into the garden can be long !!! One other thing you don't have to limit your visit to the night life sky attractions, daylight creativity is something to behold as well. There is always something to see, captured live images set before your eyes, excitement that puts a warm approving smile across your face. Come on, escape to a place and have a moment you will not forget. One last thing on the grounds are rooms, space, structures, buildings that are available for parties, weddings, socials, and many other events. Stop by make yourself known and while there enjoy the view .
