Find peace and harmony and enjoy the simple power of the natural world - become enchanted and enjoy the Botanical Gardens like never before! Gardens After Dark will be offered at different times throughout the year, this new experience was created to open the Botanical Gardens in the evening for all to enjoy.
Each Gardens After Dark exhibit will focus on our mission of connecting people to the natural world in a new way and in a new light- literally! The Botanical Gardens will be filled with colorful and soft lighting to enhance and showcase our mesmerizing plant collection and the beautiful historic landmark that surrounds. Each exhibit in the series will bring a new way to experience the amazing Botanical Gardens and provide feelings of inspiration, peace and calmness during these unprecedented times.
Many things have changed for everyone in these unprecedented times and due to the effects of COVID-19, we are unable to offer our annual evening lighting event, Lumagination, in 2021. We know that this popular event will be missed and we hope to bring it back in 2022 in the safest way possible. Gardens After Dark is not intended as a replacement for Lumagination but is simply a new way to experience the Botanical Gardens.
