Important information for the 2018 Gardens of Light visit

Natural Harmony

This autumn event sets three cultural gardens at the Jardin botanique all aglow. The Chinese Garden displays its traditional lanterns and shares a fabulous fishing tale with visitors, the Japanese Garden leads visitors along a meditative illuminated path inspired by the seasons, and the First Nations Garden features an intense multimedia experience that lets visitors feel the beating heart of the Cycle of Life.
