This is a favorite walking destination for me. A membership gets you and a friend in any time during the growing season. They put on a wonderful Christmas light display (extra charge) but it is pretty crowded close to Christmas. Recommend this as one of the must see places in Janesville.

What a wonderful time we had. Recommend taking the free shuttle to and from cars as it is way too congested with parking. The shuttle was fast and very convenient. Purchase your tickets on line if you want to breeze through the lines. They had Christmas carolers dressed up very nice and it was delightful to watch and listen to. The only downfall was the many screaming children because it was quite cold outside and they should've stayed home or came another day.

We went to the second night of their Holiday Light Festival and were blown away by the number of lights, the displays! What an uplifting experience. Have never seen anything like it. Worth the 40 mile drive and haven't stopped telling people about it. GREAT for all ages and the paths are easy to walk.

This years version of the light show is bigger and better than ever and still only a $5.00 fee to enter. A very large crowd was on hand for the 1st evening with the weather in the low 50's. The parking lot was full and street parking stretched up and down the road. Best advise is to park at Dawson field and take the shuttle bus. We took our neighbors from here in Oconomowoc to see it for the 1st time. They were in awe of the many lights and displays. Check their website for the list of dates. This is a must see in Janesville.
