Tonight my family and I checked out Alice's Garden as part of the Glow Arts Winter Festival in Stonnington and it was truly spectacular.
A small area centered around a beautiful fountain in Central Park is cordoned off until sunset when the installation begins. Beautiful flowers and mushrooms illuminate colorfully in a sequence to music. Children run around admiring the colours and all you could hear were the sounds of wonderment from everyone around.
The location of Alice's Garden makes it an easy one to do with kids, located right next to the playground and with a number of eateries in the vicinity. We got there early played on the playground and then had a quick pizza across the park and walked back at sunset. That way the kids were home in time for bed by 7.30.
The Glow Festival is a series of events after dark around Stonnington until the 20th August. Check out glowfestival.com.au for more details.
