Rotary Gardens is one of my favorite places to visit. The flowers and grounds are always well kept. The staff always friendly and willing to help! Last year they had a Hummingbird Garden! Loved watching them in the garden!

Janesville is fortunate to have such a lovely botanical garden. This one is packed with some fanciful garden spaces. Enjoy the japanese garden and other rotating spaces. Even fall shows well in the gardens.

Bigger and better than when we were there 3 years ago-over 400,000 lights this year. Allow about 45 minutes to take it all in-take pictures at the "selfie stops".
