We went for the chrysanthemum show & a walk through the conservatory. We also went for a ride on the tram which is always a nice ride. The conservatory is our favorite space at the Gardens. We love all the different palms.

Lots of variety in plants and other attractions, for example, a legos sculpture display. There is a train ride around the gardens that is fun, too.

Very beautiful, affordable night out. Quiet and cozy. A great after or before dinner spot. Will definitely revisit.

Almost no matter the season, it's a joy to visit Lauritzen Gardens. In the fall, the mums and poinsettas are magnificent in the main building, and the new conservatory. In the spring, summer and early fall it's fabulous to walk the many acres. So much...More

You could spend hours touring the grounds of this place. We happened to catch a weekend where an antique show was going on in the main buildings, so that was interesting too. There's an arboretum but most of the plantings are outside with trails leading...More

The rose garden should be in full bloom, educational and fun children’s garden, and the miniature train is a must, outside in the summer. The glass arboretum is lovely, especially if it is beastly hot! You can take a tram... More
