Wonderful Christmas and Holiday light dispalys

We visited in December and there was a very impressive walk-through light display. We also visited in the summer and the park is very enjoyable and pleasant.

A zoo that is one of the best in the country, especially the bird sanctuary. It is well maintained with various exhibits

It's a pretty nice complex of aquarium and botanical garden — with the zoo a short drive away available for one price. The aquarium is smallish but interesting, and the botanical garden has some really nice spots and interesting plant life. The zoo is OK (if you like zoos, which I don't really), and can be very hot in the... More

We enjoyed a few hours walking through these amazing indoor and outdoor gardens. We really liked meandering through the Japanese gardens and seeing the waterfalls. It's a great way to see many different varieties of plants.

This place is amazing any time of year. It also has nice areas for weddings or gatherings. Pair it with a visit to the Aquarium.

After going to the aquarium I was in for a big surprise this garden is awesome! They have a fantastic children's garden with oversized planters and carrots. There is a sandbox that the kids played in for awhile. They had a bug part as well and they actually enjoyed checking all the bugs out. They had a really cute train... More

We had our company picnic here in August, I had never been before, so we decided to go and make the best of it. We had a Fabulous time. The weather was perfect we got to see so much, and the teenage kids really had a great time.

I took my kids ages 7 to 13, and the giant make believe ant area was a lot of fun! Even i and my husband went down the slide! They enjoyed the bugarium so much as well. There is an open area with beautiful grass and flowers. If we would of known, we would of made sandwiches and had a... More

The combination of the aquarium and the botanical gardens is amazing. It takes quite some time to go through the botanical gardens and sit and enjoy so expect to set some time aside for them. The aquarium has some interesting fish and an open area to view the fish from the top, and even a huge shark exhibit over six... More
