The Winterlights was a very expensive 15 minutes (stretching it) to see very, very little. As members of the Trustees we received $10 off of a $40 entry fee for two adults. Then you follow lit bags on the ground (luminaries) through an old short greenhouse with some lights and poinsettias with cacti; then go into a garden with a modestly decorated tree with pretty hanging lights on surrounding branches, then onto a wooden walk way over mud to visit a campfire (best part of the walk), then under a short lit tunnel and a bit more walking with minimal lights. A series of wooden reindeer are available on the walk for children to fulfill a treasure hunt. A building with what looked like a throne area for Santa but he wasn't there. Carolers singing occasionally. A trailer available to buy expensive treats. Really, for $20 a person imagining that the family in front of us with 4 kids spent big bucks, I'd say at least offer free hot chocolate. AND you are not able to go in the house to see the heritage house. This was a once and done experience for us.

Do not believe reviews for "stroller friendly". Barely a stroll no path nothing to see. Jogger off-road stroller only. What a waste of our time

The displays of tulips were really beautiful. Such a variety of colors. You need to book well in advance as it's sold out for this year. Be sure to visit the house while you are there.

The new parking area is a great improvement.

The garden renovations are absolutely stunning. I wish we had been there for the tulips, but all of the other gardens were beautiful. To all that have visited before, the new entrance is in a slightly different location.

Disappointed. First and Last visit for Winterlights. Very overpriced. Terrible Muddy Grounds or some icy wood planks to walk on. Overpriced snacks, $4 for an instant hot chocolate in paper cup !! 2 Craft vendors in shed. Not enough to see for too much money. You can see it in 15 minutes. No holiday flowers, no luminaries as I heard of years past. No music playing, $36 for two adults, way too much for what was there. Police man in cross walk trying to help people cross the street was nearly run over twice in front of us by speeding people racing to a crosswalk. Save your money and drive through a lit up neighborhood.

Stevens-Coolidge ran its annual Winterlights activity. While the wind chill kept the numbers down, if you were bundled warmly the cold was no an issue. I managed to guide my way through the lighted bags on the path. For my second walk, I set up my tripod to shoot the lights. Staff was extremely friendly and supported despite they had to be frozen standing around. If you are in the area, check it out.

We were lucky enough to visit the gardens on a beautiful day and cut some flowers that are great. Free parking across the street, not crowded and nice place to spend some time relaxing. A few had a blanket and chairs set out and were enjoying the space. And they had games left out for kids to play with. Enjoy it.
