The Whimsical Garden Of D’Lights Has Been Extended Through Mid-January

New 2021 dates were just added!

The holidays are here, and there’s no better way to celebrate the season than being entranced by the glow of festive lights. And fortunately, there is no shortage of beautiful holiday displays in the Bay Area. The Bay is dripping with colorful lights this time of year, from extravagant neighborhood decorations to the many greenspaces that are decked out in seasonal trimmings.

This year especially, Bay Area parks and gardens are an important source of comfort and stress relief, and the Ruth Bancroft Garden & Nursery is certainly no exception. Each holiday season, the gardens are transformed into a dreamy whimsical wonderland, illuminated with thousands of sparkling lights and neon lasers. And this year’s event is even bigger than the last!

Garden of d’Lights invites visitors to spend quality time with loved ones and soak in the magical beauty of nature. It’s a great activity for the whole family, with 3.5 acres full of mature cacti, succulents and trees all lit up for this special season. Meander through the festive botanical sculptures and let the holiday spirit take over!

This season, visitors have some extra time to enjoy this beautiful spectacle. Garden of d’Lights was just extended so that visitors can still see the holiday lights through January 17, 2021.

Tickets cost $20 for adults and $10 for kids aged 6-15, with special discounts for members. Tickets must be purchased in advance and capacity is limited to 120 people for each time slot in order to ensure everyone’s safety. Masks and social distancing are required.
