Our kids really enjoyed it. It’s quite a small attraction but the lights are very cool and make for great photographs. Just don’t go to the seafood / crab restaurant nearby - the food there is really substandard and expensive.

Yes its pretty and the lights were amazing and looked just like the avatar jungles in the movie especially when it moved in the breeze from the sea! But its a really small park and the entry is through a residential area. No signs anywhere....More

Thoroughly enjoyed the garden. Loved the lights and it was like the movie avatar. It was magical. There were also other features like the manicured bonsai/hedge garden with stone carved animals by the beach. My boy loved it

Not worth it for a trip there as there’s really nothing spectacular. Dinner at the seafood establishment (more like a coffee shop run by residents) was unsatisfactory. The boss insisted we order crabs or we can’t dine there. There was little variety in their food...More

The lights come on every night, just as it gets dark, about 7.30pm. I'm not sure what time they turn off.
