The much-anticipated Lightscape, presented by Bank of America, has been open for about three weeks, and even in that short time, it has established its place in the hearts of area residents.

Guests are taking to social media to describe their reaction to the immersive experience that takes its guests through a twinkling field of bluebonnets, a blazing fire garden and a cathedral of light, with stops along the way for hot cocoa and roasted marshmallows.

“It was magical!” said @heartlandhomedesign. “We took our kids for the first time last night. This spot will be our new yearly tradition.”

“This immersive experience should be on your to-do list this holiday season,” urged @fwlocals.

Fort Worth Love List (@fortworthlovelist) posted a video on Instagram of some of the highlights of the Lightscape experience and called it “the most aesthetic light experience of the year.”

In fact, guests are finding the experience so magical that some are taking the Garden’s mission to Explore • Discover • Engage to heart with an engagement of a different kind. As of this writing, we know of nine couples that have gotten engaged at Lighscape—six the first weekend.

Lightscape runs through January 8 on select nights. Tickets are required for admittance, with entry times available every 15 minutes from 5:45 p.m. to 9 p.m. nightly. The average tour time from start to finish is 1.5 hours, although there is no time limit. The walking trail is a wide, paved path about one mile long. The entire route is wheelchair accessible.

Tickets are on sale at https://fwbg.org/lightscape . Adults are $28, children ages three to 12 are $18 and infants are free. Members receive $5 off of each ticket, and groups of 20 or more get ten percent off.
