“Membership the best deal”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

A beautiful spot. Membership is the better deal because 2 or 3 trips and thing pays for itself. Something to see each season. My favorite is when spiced viburnum is blooming. Perfumes the air. Children's garden very family friendly.

“Festival of Lights”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

As good as Busch Gardens. Beautiful lights. Train exhibits well done and running very well. Diamonds in the Rough stick scuplture really cool to walk through.

“Another Beautiful Christmas Lighting Display”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

As we do each year, my wife and I visited Ginter to see the Holiday Lights. Another year of outstanding displays. Colorful, interesting and thoughtful. Enjoyed the indoor train displays, too!
