Annually in September
Gardens of Light sets all three cultural gardens of the Botanical Garden aglow with light and magic, enchanting the thousands of visitors who come to enjoy this annual fall spectacle. Much more than an illuminated path, this popular fall event is an authentic gateway to three fascinating and inspiring cultures.
As per ancient tradition, the Chinese Garden displays its glittering traditional lanterns in various shapes and shares a fabulous fishing tale with visitors. The First Nations Garden features a multimedia experience highlighting the Sacred Tree, a giant poplar, symbol of the Circle of Life. As for the Japanese Garden, it leads visitors along a meditative illuminated path inspired by the seasons.
For an even more enchanting visit, plan to arrive in the late afternoon to admire the blooms and fall colours.
