As you enter the garden you are faced with a beautiful fountain. To the left is the Lanai House and the rose garden. In the sping the hundred of different colors and types of roses will take your breath away. In the winter with snow on the ground, visit the Lanai House to see the camelia's in bloom. It brings...

This was fabulous! See it at night when it's all lit up, but you'll have to hurry--it ends Aug 19, though I did hear that they may be working to extend it.

Amazing. I don't have the words to describe how awesome these lanterns were. I was particularly impressed by the dragons made of porcelain plates and the ship made of recycled bottles, and the dragons made of coloured glass bottles.

This is an amazing botanical garden and we were lucky enough to be there during the Chinese Lantern display for a buy-out event at night. Absolutely fantastic event and amazingly beautiful gardens!

Don't miss the rain forest feature. We were fortunate enough to be there during the Chinese Lantern festival which included a 173 foot long dragon. It was all awe inspiring at night.

This place was amazing. We had an awesome day! The Chinese lantern festival was here when we visited and it was beautiful. The only negative I have is that we didn't get to see the festival at night because no where was it advertised it was only a couple nights a week except right at the park. We got there... More

I love this place. The flower gardens are very pretty. They also have indoor domes you can visit too to see tropical plants that other wise wouldn't be able to grow in the Midwest. The Japanese Garden is a must see. I do with they would bring back the Cactus House. I miss that. Spring is a good time to... More

So beautiful. Went to an evening reception at the gardens. It was spectacular. Not sure who did the catering, but it was awesome. They did a Japanese Lantern display that was just amazing. Cannot wait to return.

Just a beautiful place that tantalizes the visual, auditory and olfactory senses! Favorite place to take the grand kids and family for over 40 years. Great food, gift shop and fun during all 4 seasons!

My wife loved it, I followed her around with a "smile" on my face. This was a limited time event at the gardens and was very well set out. Plenty to see, lots to look at nad lots of concessions available.
