Descanso Gardens: Enchanted Forest of Light

Returning November 2017. An interactive night time light display experience for all ages!

Happy New Year! What better way to start off 2017 with a spectacular light event.

There is 8 illuminated light displays around the botanical garden. Here are a few displays I took pictures of.



Over at the Lightwave Lake, there is a button and joystick that controls the colors of the light as it swings over the surface of the water.


The most fun interactive display is the rainbow lily pads on the Luminous Lawn. Each lily pad changes color as your step foot and jump around on it. One of my favorite displays.

Some of the paths get a little muddy so prepare to wear comfortable shoes. Also the event only runs during the night so it can be a bit chilly, dress warmly.

This is a timed ticket event and varies by dates. I realized time slots 5:00pm, 5:30pm, 6:00pm, & 6:30pm are available only for members. 8:00pm, 8:30pm, 9:00pm, & 9:30pm is open to the general public. Ticket costs $28 for adults and $24 for child and seniors (if you look around you can probably find a discount deal on Groupon, Goldstar)

The event can last an 1-2 hours, depending how long you stay at each display. Drinks are also available to purchase – coffee, hot chocolate, alcohol drinks
