Hopelands Garden is a lovely respite from a busy day. The gardens change with the seasons, culminating at Christmas, with a fun and festive light show aptly named, Christmas at Hopelands.

Great place to take a stroll and see the great gardens of the south in the middle of the city. Love to go after a lunch in the city.

Very good light show for the kids and family to have a nice time out together. Cookies and warm apple cider/hot chocolate made a nice snack with a warm drink for the cool night. We enjoyed the show and outting.
