Spent the afternoon here with grandchildren, 5 & 8. So much to see and do: the sandpit, splash fountain (FYI there are restrooms here) and enchanted forest were a hit! Kids like seeing turtles and rescued a baby one from the walkway. Azaleas are spectacular!...More

On a warm evening, we enjoyed the extensive and beautiful display of lights in the garden. What a delightful way to extend the season and boost attendance at the Gardens.

Took in the gardens with my friends to see Lantern Asia. We did the loop in the daylight and then again in the evening hours. The pieces were just stunning lit up. It was a little chilly that day. But I wish we would have...More
