Get into the holiday spirit with an outdoor light and sound display opening in a Burlington park this week.

Winter Wonders starts Wednesday (Nov. 23) at Hendrie Park in Royal Botanical Gardens, 680 Plains Rd. W., Burlington.

The park is adorned with festive lights, new interactive light to sound installations and magical displays to celebrate the winter season.

Visitors walk through the park on a one-way, 1.5 km path through the garden to see all the displays. Along the path, people walk through rows of light structures and interact with a “singing tree.”

Then head indoors to see the Botanical Train display. The display consists of planters made from almost 700 kilograms of cedar filled with 2,500 plants create a seasonal backdrop for seven different lines of model train tracks.

The trains journey past scale models of iconic Canadian landmarks constructed entirely from plant materials.

There is also food and drink available to purchase at the Turner Pavilion Teahouse or the Food Trailer. And live musical performances under the heated Rose Garden tent are on every night of Winter Wonders.

Winter Wonders runs from Nov. 23 to Jan. 8 (closed Dec. 25, 26, Jan. 1). Timed-tickets from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. or 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. are required to visit.
