Last year we dipped our toe, now we’re making a splash!

South Coast Botanic Garden’s GLOW (or Garden Lights & Ocean Waters) has been reimagined for its sophomore year. Guests can expect a better and brighter experience. Food, drinks, music and a transformative Garden featuring thousands of lights will have you hanging on the beach, drinking cocktails on the bayou and chasing waterfalls. And a stunning kelp forest will take your breath away and spark your interest in the beauty of the sea. This year’s exhibit also includes interactive experiences and themed nights (more on themed nights and other important information in our guide). And remember, Members get discounted tickets!

Accessibility: Some areas of the GLOW experience might be impassable for wheelchairs or those with mobility issues. We have a select amount of accessibility tickets available on Monday Nights from 5:30-8:00 pm. Accessibility tickets should be booked in advance by calling Guest Services at 424-452-0920. If these tickets have not been booked in advance, we will not be able to accommodate you due to limited availability.

Important note: Those with sensory sensitivities and disorders should be aware of flashing lights and loud music throughout the walk. Wheelchair accessibility is limited to our paved paths, though please note that our paved paths do include uneven pavement and hills.
