This year, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is hosting Lightscape, a dazzling, illuminated trail that takes visitors throughout the garden after dark. Perfect for the holiday season, visitors can walk through the Winter Cathedral tunnel, Fire Garden and Sea of Light. 

Also at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is poems written in light by popular Young Adult writer, Jacqueline Woodson. Other NYC artists at the Lightscape include Shakiem Reed, Jacob M. Fisher and Challenge Your Imagination.

Going into the New Year, tasty seasonal goodies will be available. You can look forward to holiday alcoholic beverages, chocolate, hot cocoa and other snacks.

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

Take advantage of this glorious outdoor experience this winter.
