    Each year during the Holidays, Descanso Gardens transforms it grounds into an enchanted forest with whimsical lighting displays and interactive exhibitions. A one-mile path, intended for nighttime enjoyment, veers through the Oak Woodland, Camellia Forest, Japanese Garden, and Rose Garden.

    Special Light Effects

    Descanso Gardens partnered with Lightswitch to create ten high-impact theatrical experiences using environmental light effects. New this year is “Aqueous” by Jen Lewis, an interactive landscape of meandering pathways of light.

    Highlights

    The Symphony of Oaks invites visitors to manipulate the sounds and lights in the Oak Grove.  The walk concludes with a spectacular light display in Descanso’s iconic Japanese Garden. Enjoy a stop for hot cocoa or an adult beverage and dinner or a snack along the way.
