We've lived roughly 1 hour from the GBBG for about 22 yrs now. We have been attending the Green Bay Botanical Gardens Festival of Lights for many years- When we began, it was a very small affair, but every year they add more lights and displays, and its gotten to be quite large & breathtaking !

If you are in the GB area you must go to this botanical garden to experience the holiday light show. Truly impressive. Come early to park in the parking lot otherwise you will need to park off-site and be shuttled back and forth. You can either walk the grounds or (for a fee) ride a horse drawn wagon. I would...

My fiance and I had our first date here at the Garden of Lights 5 years ago. Last year at the Garden of Lights he proposed! This is a very magical place :) Would highly recommend!

Need to get away from anything or anyone, this is the place. Peaceful, butterflies to enjoy, birds to watch, benches to sit on, beautiful plants. And if that wasn't enough, the staff is friendly and helpful. Get yourself an annual pass and take time for all the different landscapes nature has to offer.

The gardens have many interesting plants and flowers local to the area. They also display a lot of lights at Christmas time.

The gardens were gorgeous, this was a treat and who knew this was in the middle of the city. It was a beautiful evening, enjoyed it thoroughly.

Located off Packerland Drive on the west side of Green Bay near Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (can access from school as well). It looks good in all seasons. I was there in early October and they were transitioning out summer annuals with fall items. All was very nicely maintained and even more important good labeling of plant names.

A friend and I shared an afternoon in the garden for a much overdo visit to cash up on each other's lives. Neither one of us had been to the garden in a couple of years so it was fun to see how different areas of matured and what was new. The grounds are kept very clean and people working... More

We stopped in at night because they had a "family" night. It was mostly for the kids, but we were allowed to attend for the same price. The docent took us through the gardens and explained to the kids about the different seeds and how they get moved from place to place by the birds and animals. The gardens are... More

From reading the other reviews, I expected a good experience. But, I didn't expect to be so impressed. The gardens are designed and cared for with great thought and countless hours. Wonderful paved paths through the highlights and for the more adventurous, chipped wood paths to the outskirts. Layers of flowers and plants complimented by structures. Rolling hills in otherwise...
