Idaho Botanical Garden, Boise Reviews - Write a Review

  • My first trip to the Idaho Botanical Garden holiday light show called Winter Garden Glow. Really great light displays. Cost was a bit more than I would have liked to pay. Paid much less at the St. Louis Garden Winter Glow and it was MUCH larger. Only negative I care to discuss is the parking...I prefer to back into parking spots, especially when I know it will be dark when I leave and therefore harder to back out of a parking spot, and when I tried to back into a parking spot one of their 'parking police' came over and told me I had to pull my vehicle in frontwards because it is Garden policy. I explained my reason for backing in and the lady looked at me as if I was from outer space and told me it didn't matter what I thought and that I had to pull my vehicle in correctly or leave. Very stupid policy, very poor parking assistant relations.

  • Such a gorgeous and great place to visit. During the spring when everything blooms, it's fascinating to learn about all the wildlife in our backyard! During the winter, the garden puts Christmas lights out. It's truly stunning. I felt like I was at Disneyland.

  • Had a really nice girls night out walking through Winter Aglow. It is a little pricey just for a walk around a garden and I wouldn't be able to afford to take my family but it was beautiful. Caldwell lights are pretty impressive too, and they are free. Still, I give it 4 stars because I had a good time.

  • Just visited for the first time for winter garden aglow. It was fun seeing all the lights and it was a great time walking the grounds, drinking cocoa and hot cider. Can't wait for spring/summer to tour again when the garden is in full bloom!

  • It's a beautiful garden, but we went out for the Garden Aglow and not only was there no Santa (read the fine print, I guess) but the train was also not up and running. When you have 3 attractions, and 2 out of the 3 aren't available, how do you get away with charging full price? The lights were very pretty, but not drive 45 minutes from Nampa and pay $12 a person (for our family of 5) pretty. My kids were pretty disappointed.
