Walk Around in Glimmering Gardens December 5
Walking outside is still a safe activity. And this December, you can do it at the Waterfront Botanical Gardens, a garden that’s all lit up with twinkling, glimmering lights. Not bad, right?
Take a self-guided walking tour through the Waterfront Botanical Gardens. Everything will be lit up and it will all look magical. Walk past swans, deer, snowflakes, flowers and all sorts of shapes and displays. There’s a multicolored tunnel of lights that’s designed to dazzle.
Go through the icicle arches along the Beargrass Creek Pathway. They will take you to the illuminated waterfall. With your ticket you’ll get a timed slot. Staggered start times help provide safe space for everyone to enjoy the lights safely and at a distance. You can enjoy the lights as long as you want but an average time to see the entire display is about 30 minutes. Walks begin at 5:45 pm.
The lights go off at 9 pm. Everyone is required to wear a mask and tickets cost $7 per person and free for children under 12. Find the glimmering gardens at the Waterfront Botanical Gardens. That’s at 1435 Frankfort Avenue. That’s right outside the Clifton neighborhood. After you walk in the gardens, go get a better look at what’s going on in Clifton.
