“Don't miss Bulb Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We were at the HBG last year when the tulips and daffodils were blooming and, oh my, what a glorious sight! There's something special every season but early spring is a wonder to behold...my favorite time.

“So nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I went to Botanical Gardens last year, and it was during the time when they had a theme for butterfly gardens. It was done so tastefully and pretty I will never forget it! The staff was so nice and helpful.

“Expansive and lovely Grounds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

You would need at least 3 hours to walk the entire property, and it's better to have more time because the park is a long rectangle and there are many unique places you'll want to sit, rest, relax, and just enjoy looking around. Many areas do not have shade, so I would caution against visiting between 11am and 2pm on a very hot summer day. We loved the Butterfly House, the Japanese Garden and the turtles! The Rose Gardens are very open and hot (as many roses thrive in full sun) and that was tiring. The grounds are beautiful and there are some wooded paths that run along the perimeter, but not along the entire park. Beautiful spring, summer or fall. They have a drive-thru lights display at Christmas, but we've never done that.

“Georgeous Gardens with a butterfly area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Our church group made a trip to the Gardens. It was well worth visiting. Beautiful flowers, a nursery especialy for butterflies, a miniture train scene. Tours, and a gift shop. They have special decoration during the Christmas reason which is amazing. Enjoyed!
