Join us for the third-annual Gardens Aglimmer at Waterfront Botanical Gardens, a self-guided walking experience among our illuminated outdoor gardens.

Enjoy a sparkling winter wonderland of swans, snowflakes, deer, Moravian stars, oversized flowers, light bursts, candles, and a multicolor tunnel of lights. Wander the Beargrass Creek Pathway under icicle arches and a waterfall stream aglow. Visit Santa and his sleigh in the Graeser Family Education Center and Mrs. Claus’ Cottage in the new Ellen T Leslie Botanical Classrooms*.

Hot beverages and cookies are available for purchase from Khalil’s in the Jingle All the Way Cafe.

Once you arrive, you are welcome to stay as long as you like, however, 45 minutes is ample time for a thorough visit.  Lights turn off at 9 pm.

No outside food or drink, pets, smoking, or vaping allowed inside the Gardens.
GARDENS AGLIMMER WILL BE CLOSED ON CHRISTMAS EVE, CHRISTMAS DAY, NEW YEARS EVE, NEW YEARS DAY.

*Santa and Mrs. Claus will be present 12/2 – 12/23
