The light show was amazing. Very beautiful. Didn't like the cold and wind. Needed more hot chocolate stations although we did have jasmine tea

These gardens are lovely. The highlights were the greenhouse of edible plants, the orchids and the lantern festival in The Chinese Gardens (although this only goes from Aug/Sept until the end of October and from 6pm was very busy). The staff are also very friendly.

At the time we were there, there were several lovely exhibitions and displays--Japanese paper arts, and a fantastic Chinese lantern section in the garden. The fall colors were beautiful.

I really enjoyed the trip to the botanical garden to see the Chinese lanterns... I have to say it is something I have always wanted to go see and I was happy when the opportunity came up. Don't go on a chilly night

The children had lots of open space to play with beautiful sights, sounds and scents. The favorites were theJapanese and chinese gardens. The visit to the Olympic Park and Stadium were highlights for the children - especially the elevator ride to the top!

We got lost looking for stuff on the provided map. Not sure if it was the map or the sign posts that was the cause of the problem. Maybe both.

The entranceway was beautiful and spectaular and what we expected inside but did not get. The grounds looked tired. The highlight was the explanation of the tea ceremony by the woman in the tea garden. Also, the bonsai display (some over 150 years old) were...More

We visited this place in Oct. Right away one of the things I realized was that this was probably not the best month to go. Since this is a Botanical garden a part of what you want to see are flowers. Unfortunately the flowers were...More
