  • Beautiful park with lots of seasonal views and activities. Great place for family photos. Nice for a picnic, also.

  • The Holiday lights were so beautiful! Really impressive and well worth the price. We enjoyed that it was open after all other holiday events in the area have ended. We were able to get tickets to our preferred time the day of, by watching the online calendar all day. We added on a tour of the mansion (only about $2 more) which was so worth it! The mansion was decorated for the holidays and the artwork was nice to look at. Our 4-year-old daughter really enjoyed the kids area (tea house, adventure trail, fairy house). The holiday themed drinks at the bar were also nice. The marketplace was sparse since it was after Christmas. The train exhibit was a big hit! We loved the Christmas lights and music there. We were very pleased and impressed with this event!
  • Very beautiful! We went after dark for the Christmas lights. We toured the mansion. There is a wonderful museum in the mansion. Then walked the roughly 1 mile trail of gardens and lights. They have hot cocoa, and other refreshments at stands during the walk. Nice gift shop. Overall a very nice place to visit! Wheelchair accessibility.
