Visitors can enjoy Jen Lewin’s popular flowing and glowing interactive landscape of meandering pathways, “Aqueous,” from new neon benches placed around the Main Lawn.

Enchanted will also feature new dining options in the Courtyard and a whiskey bar overlooking “Lightwave Lake.” Maple, Descanso Gardens’ restaurant, will be open nightly exclusively for Enchanted ticket holders.
