You can be sure your gift to the Gardens on Spring Creek will be used efficiently and effectively to enrich the lives of people and foster environmental stewardship.
Open every evening (including holidays), from 5-9 p.m.
Join us for one of Northern Colorado's best holiday traditions - Garden of Lights! We invite you to stroll through the whimsically decorated and twinkling Gardens lit by hundreds of thousands of LED lights. The show will sparkle December 1 through January 1.
Visit your favorite perennial flower beds, huge sculptural flowers, a brilliant blue pond, grapevines, butterflies, and a Primordial Forest with dinosaurs—all created entirely from holiday lights. Woodward's Holiday Village will return this year!
Entertainment is variable throughout the weekends. During Friday, Sat, or Sun, visit with Santa (see schedule below to see when he will be visiting) or the 'Sugar Plum' canine troupe, listen to holiday music, make seasonal crafts, and enjoy warm drinks. Other surprises are in store! Please see complete entertainment schedule below to prepare for your visit.
Cost to enter is a $5 suggested donation per adult, $2 suggested donation per child. Children 2 years and under admitted free.
Gardens on Spring Creek and its Gift Shop are open normal daytime business hours Mon-Fri, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. during Gardens of Lights season.
