With temperatures expected to warm up later in the week, it is the perfect time to take a stroll through Meadowlark Gardens’ Winter Walk of Lights.
The Northern Regional Park Authority has teamed with Dominion Virginia Power to turn the grounds of the Vienna park into a holiday oasis with thousands of LED lights illuminating the paths. Visitors take a half-mile stroll through nature-themed lights, then are treated to an animated light show by the lake. “Lakeside Lights” features 40,000 LED lights on 200 circuits changing colors to five holiday songs.
Here is what to know if you go:
Meadowlark’s Winter Walk of Lights is open from 5:30 to 10 p.m., seven days a week until Jan. 6.
