I have been to Lauritzen Gardens in the summer and finally have gone in the winter. I would recommending see it all year round. If you like the tropics and miss the weather visit the conservatory. It's very peaceful. You will find lots of beauty and wonder. In the winter plan for about 1-2 hours depends on you. If you are going in the summer plan for more time.

If it’s nice out you can get some great exercise while enjoying all the sites. If it’s cold you can enjoy all the beautiful plants inside take some nice pictures with friends and family.

These gardens are a special experience. They are full of unique and beautiful greenery. The Glass House is a treat even in bad weather. I love to go and spend a quiet, calm afternoon.

Lauritzen Gardens is a wonderful 100 acre oasis right in the heart of the city just a few blocks from downtown. Since opening 20 years ago it has continually added new attractions including not only the flowers, trees and walking trails that would be expected in a botanical garden but also striking statuary, a tropical conservatory and an amazing outdoor model railroad setup as well as really lovely bookstore and restaurant. Highly recommended as a great place to spend a few hours and roll back the tensions of everyday life.

Having visited once before, years ago, I was surprised to see the addition. From the outside I could see hanging creations that reminded me of Chahuly glass. Once inside I was impressed by the creations actually made from discarded plastic items. That’s right, think bowls, bottles, spoons, rakes, toys, you get the picture, molded into fish, birds, jellyfish and other more abstract models. They were so numerous and creative that I barely paid any attention to the amazing horticultural exhibit. A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
