Trip Report Longwood Gardens - Bruce Munro Light Installation

Jump to last reply

I have wanted to see the Light Installation at Longwood Gardens since it opened in June. Busy Summer did not make it was determined to go last night. So basically I made my family go against their will and listened to three whiners through almost two hours of traffic, construction and sheer distance....it was a test of endurance. I'm glad I persisted it was worth the trip. The grounds are always gorgeous - reminiscent of illustrations in a Chris Van Allsburg book. The light installation took it to another level.

There are several light displays throughout the gardens personal favorites were the forest walk and the large cylinder lights in the meadow (with a well suited music selection). You have to see it in person to appreciate it. It was magical and I felt pure joy being there. We spent three hours there and I could have stayed all night. Finally gave in to the weary leg tired kids who just finished their first week of school.

One let down, the main fountains were not lit up I guess to keep people moving through the light installations. I was surprised that was not mentioned when we asked a staff member for directions to the main fountain when it was dark. We were truly on our own in that part of the park. It was a fun family adventure. The installations are only there until September 29th - if you have any way to get there - don't hesitate - go (and enjoy).
