The most exited place I've ever been this year. This Botanical garden with incredible flowers and plants were amazing experience. So many varieties of trees 🌳. So man flowers that I have never seen before. Fountain ⛲️ show also was incredible, lots of good emotions and memories from it. So if you like nature, flowers and plants come and visit. You better come here in the morning 🌄 so not to get burn under the sun. Bring hat and sun's cream to protect yourself. Lots of pictures 📸 from here will be our good memories

What a beautiful place! Yes, there's construction going on in one area but it doesn't distract from the whole gardens. Definitely bring your walking shoes and a folding chair. You will walk a lot but it's so worth it. Your chair is for when you sit and watch the fountain show, which is a definite must do. The Idea Garden is beautiful and so were the dahlias that were in bloom. Beauty is everywhere and the benches are placed to sit, rest your feet, and enjoy it all. We hit every area and enjoyed it all. My favorite was the Fountain show and different Lights show that are around the property. My only issue was not enough trash cans. We didn't want to miss anything so we picked up drinks and a snack and kept walking around. Then we were carrying our empty containers for quite a bit before we found a trash can to dispose of it properly. All in all..... a terrific day with beautiful night time shows to end it. Definitely a must see. If close enough, become a member!

We had a wonderful visit! You could spend an entire day exploring the grounds or choose shorter loops. We stayed a little over 4 hours. Most of the walking was very easy and can accommodate a stroller easily. We enjoyed a great lunch in the cafe (although pretty pricey), had great interactions with staff, and loved exploring the interior and exterior options! I felt like a large amount of time had shade available which is appreciated.

Cool to spend a good half day here especially to see the lights at night, I haven't been back here in forever! The water fountain light show was great, they have it on Thursdays through Sundays at night. The Illuminated Fountain Performances start at 9:15 pm and lasted about 30-45 minutes. People put seats out to save a good spot. You can see them if you stand in the back too. I think that actually is a better view and you can see everything. Loved the lollipop lights, those are so cool too (Light: Installations by Bruce Munro). They have a few different locations for these light installations you can check out, it's very easy to get lost in the dark if you don't follow the crowd. Not a lot of lights when you're walking around in the dark so make sure you know where you're headed! There's a hidden waterfall under the fountain if you walk around there. It looks pretty cool with purple lights. Ticket prices are cheaper if you go earlier, click around different times to see if you can get a better deal. Food options are quite limited and the lines are crazy long. Still a good experience overall and highly recommended!

Always a fantastic visit. Have been a member for fourteen years. Well worth the price of membership. It saves a lot if you are a repeat visitor to buy a membership. Displays and exhibits change with each season and are very well done. Staff is quite knowledgeable and eager to answer questions. Many volunteers who are also well trained and knowledgeable. Only complaint is that the prices in the cafe have gone up significantly since the remodeling. Food is very good in the cafe and offers lots of selections using local produce.
