If you are planning on visiting Garden of Lights during one of our premium nights (December 14, 15 & 16 or 21, 22, 23 & 26), you may want to consider taking a taxi or ride share (such as Uber or Lyft). All parking at the Garden is on a first-come, first-served basis and we have a limited number of spaces – which may cause us to close our gates to incoming traffic periodically when our lots are full.  However, we can always accommodate walk-in guests during Garden of Lights.

After the sun goes down, more than 125,000 sparkling lights transform some of our favorite parts of the Garden into a dazzling winter wonderland - SoCal style! Come enjoy our magical holiday experience. Fun for the whole family! Click on the buttons below for more information on:
