We went for the first time to see the Christmas Lights. At $5 per person it is a very reasonable activity. I am in a wheelchair and although part of it is paved about half is not. That made it hard for my husband to shove me thru the dirt/leaves/sticks. That being said the lights were fun and we saw... More

Visited with family to see the Christmas lights and the Bonsai plants. We were not disappointed. They were very organized in getting all the cars into the parking area. Admission was very reasonable and well worth it. Lights were well done and made walking around the area very easy.

Our family visited Heathcote Botanical in December for the holiday light displays. What a wonderful way to spend the evening. Young to old, we all enjoyed the nighttime walk through the gardens. The light displays were enchanting. There was a live band playing Christmas & holiday tunes. Santa & Mrs. Claus were outside a decorated house. There was a fire... More

What a beautiful Garden(s). They are filled with mature well cared for plants of all varieties. The Christmas eve would be best to go, to see the lights, but you may lose out from seeing all the variety of plants. Lovely, peaceful indeed.

We were in the area for Christmas Vacation and eagerly seeking lights to see. I could not find very may write up and reviews on this garden and just a few pictures on their own web page made it seem worthwhile as we were planning to explore Fort Pierce and the marina lights anyhow. What a wonderful surprise. I corralled... More

Heathcote Gardens are a wonderful way to spend some quiet time. In addition to regular botanical gardens, they have one of the largest displays of bonsai trees anywhere. I was prepared to be not impressed, but I was impressed. The bonsai are wonderfully done, all shapes and sizes. We went during the Christmas season, and they have a very nice... More

Went here on 12/9/16. Very enjoyable walk through the gardens which are all lighted with various displays for Xmas. Map and game for the kids. $5 to get in which benefits the gardens. There is entertainment each evening up to Xmas, the choir we heard including accompanying band was great. Very nice to see children engaged in such a positive... More

We chose to visit the gardens at the first of the event in December. The Garden of Lights displays were breathtaking, whimsical, and outstanding. The volunteers did a wonderful job decorated the entire garden with lights and with lighted animals. They even have a sheet with the animals listed so you can 'spot' them as you walk through. The night... More
