In a weekend filled with activities aimed at grownups, you can embrace the beauty of winter, play a little, and indulge in a one-of-a-kind outdoor dining experience.
This is date night with a twist – let your inner child out to play and have some fun, while also enjoying the traditional elements of a date night out – a stroll through a beautiful winter garden, live music for ambiance, and incredible food and beverage options.
We’ve partnered with the best of the region’s dining establishments to create a unique outdoor eating experience. Northern Light Tapas is an assortment of gourmet savouries and sweets that you can enjoy while strolling through the Garden or gazing at the sky. And you can add to the experience with a lovely BC wine or an Alberta craft beer.
Take a whirl down an ice slide built for adults, declare your love on a tree sculpture designed for initials and hearts, and let the sounds of live music wash over you as you stroll the paths of the Kurimoto Japanese Garden. And when it’s time to slow things down, a warmup by a firepit, a selfie on an ice chair in the Aga Khan Garden, and some time spent gazing at the stars around the Calla Pond will round out the evening.
You can also sign up for add-on activities like guided Moonlight Snowshoeing or Indigenous Dark Skies Storytelling, or create a memory with a light painting photo portrait session.
