This is a beautiful place to visit at Christmas time. I can't speak for the rest of the year, as we have only ventured here in the cold and snow during the holidays. There are horse drawn sleigh rides, a miniature train set, unique Christmas light displays, Hot Cocoa and beverages, snacks, and even Santa and Mrs Claus are there... More

The Christmas light display this year was fantastic. I had never been to the festival of lights and I was extremely surprised at the detail and obvious effort that went into this display. A perfect holiday treat.

I toured the gardens with a group of people from work, the gardens were amazing as there is so many different settings to look at. We had a guide but I think a person really wouldn't need one. The staff were very polite and accommodating.

This place is absolutely beautiful in the summer but the wagon rides at Christmas time are a must see. The kids love it in the winter. Great place to go on a date to take your time on a long walk.

Unbelievable gathering of gorgeous landscape, seasonal flowers and tranquility. Weddings or simple quiet meanderings alike, you will treated to a memory you will want to create again and again. Summer fairs, Thursday night music on the green for picnics, the trout pond, Winter Garden of Lights festival with horse drawn carriage (a family annual favorite), and many many classes to... More

We have toured the Gardens twice, in spring and fall. Both times were outstanding. The Gardens are well maintained and the staff is very helpful. We have been impressed with the variety of flora that is on display as well as the other aspects of the Garden (children's areas, other non-botanical aspects). We plan to go back at other times...

We went for the WPS Garden of Lights the weekend before Christmas. It was a beautiful experience in the snow. It's a nice walk through the gardens, or you can take a carriage ride. I've gone twice and it is a must for anyone who loves creative Christmas light displays.

Thanks to the many corporate sponsors to make this place so nice to visit over the holidays. You can walk or take the carriage and either way you can't help but be in the Christmas spirit.

The Botanical Garden is a great place to visit at any time, but it is best to avoid on very hot days because most of the best things to look at are not in the shade. Visited one afternoon in the summer, they had activities for the children and seemed to be a very family friendly place.
