Discover Wisconsin: Wisconsin's No. 1 park place is a stunner
Photo supplied Rotary Botanical Gardens is one of 56 parks in Janesville. The gardens have more than 24 different garden styles, including a Japanese garden and bridge, and 4,000 varieties of plants on 20 acres. Events are scheduled throughout the year, including a holiday light show, a major fundraiser for the gardens. The 2016 show had almost 27,000 visitors and featured more than 250 million lights, 2,500 luminaries, 100 decorated trees and 500 dangling icicle lights.
Regarded as Wisconsin's Park Place - for good reason - Janesville is a total gem of a city. I think travelers have overlooked Rock County's largest community, but I know firsthand that Janesville has plenty to offer its visitors, whether you're into enjoying the great outdoors or trekking the shops of the community's downtown district.
