This place is kinda boring. Pretty quiet but it was only fun for everyone under the age of 7 in terms of the children's' garden. There were no real flowers or birds but that could be because of the season and the time I went....More

May be a little bias since we have a 1+1 annual pass, and have had for years. Enjoy going from spring to early fall and usually illuminations. Enjoy most when flowers are in bloom starting with bulbs, then roses followed later by summer flowers. Several...More

We love getting to go every year to illuminations. Watching my kids look at the thousands of lights, eat popcorn and see Santa makes it worth it every year. We will continue to go every year.

Botanica is a wonderful place to be alone with your thoughts. I would highly recommend visiting for the Christmas light display. The team spends a lot of effort turning the park into a winter wonderland.

Google "Botanica illuminations" include "5 things to know" or "Botanica Illuminations hours" It will give you the proper information.
