The Lightscape Show

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is once again hosting Lightscape, a dazzling, illuminated trail that takes visitors throughout the garden after dark. Perfect for the holiday season, visitors will encounter monumental lighted sculptures, colorful effects on trees, architecture and water features, and festive music. Seasonal treats are also available.

If you’re looking for a winter experience both safe and fun, this illuminated outdoor trail is a perfect New York City adventure.

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden was founded in 1910. It is an urban garden that connects people to the world of plants, fostering delight and curiosity while inspiring an appreciation and sense of stewardship of the environment.
