  • This was the first time that I experienced going to the Holiday of Lights in the Garden after living here for 10 years. There were so many lights to see. I can’t believe that I waited 10 years to come and experience this place. My daughter went to see one of her friends perform at a Christmas Show. I am very pleased with the experience. This was my first time at the Botanical Gardens and it is beautiful out there. There were so many lights and different themes of lights to see. There were little areas of kid games, vendors and even informational booths from around the community. I love supporting local businesses and there was some fresh baked goods that I bought several items from. We had some hot cocoa and coffee from the coffee stands that were there. My daughter and her friend went into this big pipe and rolled down a hill. There were picture taking with Santa and the Grinch too. It is definitely a place I would go and visit again. Prices weren’t too expensive to go in and I remember being able to buy tickets online.
  • We recently had our daughters sweet 16 in the Orangery Room. Let me tell you, the gardens is where its at. Lauren and her crew were AMAZING from start to finish. Constant contact, going above and beyond for us to meet our requirements for the party, etc. They made my daughters night in to one of the best of her life. They truly remember customer service and service with excellence and I cannot be happier. Money very well spent! Thank you Lauren for being so understanding, accommodating, and helping us even when we were running 45 minutes late lol. You were nothing short of amazing, professional, and all around wonderful to work with. Your end of night staff were extremely friendly and were absolutely amazing to deal with. Thanks again for everything!
