Went last night to see Lumination. That is a great way to see the botanical gardens. Have been there numerous time in daytime but this was really unique. Nice lights and Chinese lanterns.

Great for family. New updates make it better. Not as much for young children to do. Toddlers have an activity area. Most plants in great shape. Recommend for any who like plants. Don't really need more than 1.5 hours to go through.
