Our family visited May 2018 during their festival of lights exhibit. It was amazing, and beautifully designed. We just walked along leisurely on our own time enjoying these beautiful gardens. Thank you to all the artists and designers of this lovely garden!

This is a must see at Christmas time. The entire gardens are lighted so beautifully with lights and candles. Thousands of candles are lit every evening during this display. There is live music to add to the festiveness.

It really depends on the area of the park you are walking. Some areas have quite a bit of shade, but others are more open. There are plenty of great areas to choose from whether you want shade or not.
