This holiday season, Descanso Gardens in Los Angeles, California will be transformed into Enchanted Forest of Light - an interactive, nighttime experience, featuring a one-mile walk through 10 distinct lighting displays in some of the most beloved areas of the gardens.

Descanso Gardens, one of my all-time favorite public gardens in Southern California, is hosting Enchanted: Forest of Light from November 17 – January 5.  Last year, my family and I had the opportunity to attend a special media preview of Enchanted: Forest of Light before it opened to the general public.  The light display is not only enchanting, but truly magical.

About Enchanted: Forest of Light at Descanso Gardens

As the sun set, Descanso Gardens transforms into an Enchanted: Forest of Light right before your very eyes.  The interactive, nighttime display is  unlike anything else you have ever seen in Los Angeles.  It is simply mesmerizing!  Some other words that come to mind to describe the light display are captivating, riveting and and amazingly beautiful.

Normally during the day, Descanso Gardens is a 160-acre outdoor wonderland, featuring the Camellia Forest and floral displays in the International Rosarium, natural growth in the world-famous Japanese garden and Oak Woodland.  With the Enchanted: Forest of Light, these sights are now even more magical.

At night, during the one-mile walk, we passed through 8 distinct lighting displays in some of the most beloved areas of the gardens including the Oak Grove and the Camellia Forest.  We were given an experience guide / map upon entering, which helped us make our way along the route in numerical order, 1-8.  This year there are 10 stations in all.  There are also staff members throughout the garden that helped direct us with their flashlights.

Each section is filled with stunning neon colors and luminous hues that blend in perfectly with nature.  From the charming Flower Power display, to the plants and trees in the Fantasy & Ancient Forests, to the Luminous Lawn and then the red lanterns in the Japanese Garden of Good Fortune, I couldn’t get enough of all the sights and sounds.

In particular, my kids enjoyed jumping on the “lily pads” as they liked to call them.  Ever so often, when the lights changed color, my children were enticed to jump to the next pad.  It was a nice energy release for them too.
