Step Inside Garvan Woodland Gardens Holiday Lights Extravaganza

garvan woodland gardens holiday lightsThe Holidays are Here in Hot Springs…

Our guests are walking in a winter wonderland! Lookout Point Lakeside Inn’s neighbor across the water, Garvan Woodland Gardens, hosts the best holiday light display in Arkansas. Eighteen acres are decked with over 4 million lights, including colorful characters as well as traditional Christmas and nature scenes.

This all-ages attraction grows each year, including new animated light features making their debut in 2017. Whether friends, family, or couples, all visitors enjoy a right jolly laugh and a twinkle in the eye. If the magical yuletide glow isn’t enough to keep you warm, be sure to visit the complimentary hot chocolate tent.


Garvan Gardens opens its gates nightly now through New Year’s Eve. There are special events throughout the month of December, including holiday concerts and the annual Jingle Dog Pup Parade. Though there can be large crowds at the entrance (especially on weekends), Lookout Point guests can obtain tickets at our front desk to skip the line.
