  • this is a magical botanical garden, well worth a day trip. We plan to go back this spring and enjoy a different season there. The rose gardens are fantastic, also the water features. Loved it!  more »

  • They did it again. A beautiful display of lights. With the pathways lit enough to see but yet keep the displays bright and Shining. The fairy houses add an extra treat for the kids to seek out. The only drawback was for a person who is handicapped the walking was increased from the entrance of the visitor center to the main Garden area. For a person with walking difficulties this was quite an additional walk. I did not seek out whether there was an alternative place to be dropped off.
  • Just wonderful! Helpful staff. Kid friendly.
