With spring finally here, it’s time to celebrate.

And you can do exactly that with the interactive LED ‘Garden of Light’ experience at CF Chinook Centre. Located in the Centre Court, the garden is here to mesmerize you with 4,000 bright LED flowers.

Get interactive at the Garden of Light by activating a pre-programmed light show. By using a touchpad within the installation, you can trigger magical colour and pattern reactions. You’ll want to take a lot of photos while you’re there, and you can also activate the Garden of Light by sharing your selfies on Instagram and Twitter, using the hashtag #CFHelloSpring.

Floral LED gardens

This is a multi-sensory experience because you can physically and socially engage with the Garden of Light. Soundtracks and cheerful sound effects make your experience in the garden ultimately rejuvenating. As you walk around the garden illuminated by thousands of lights, you’ll see four different 90-second light shows taking place with alternating music every 10 minutes.


Get snap-happy and take selfies in front of the installation. The LED lights will give you a new filter glow to make your selfies beautifully spring-ready.

Live orchestra performance

To add even more personality to this dazzling event, CF Chinook Centre is bringing members of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra to perform at the Garden of Light on Saturday, April 8. This epic performance is free to the public and taking place from 2:30 to 4:30 pm.


When you leave the Garden of Light, you’ll feel inspired to get started on your spring wardrobe. With over 250 stores to choose from, finding some new key pieces for your wardrobe couldn’t be easier. CF Chinook Centre has large popular retailers, as well as bespoke boutiques for both home and fashion.

CF Chinook Centre is one of five floral LED gardens popping up around the country to celebrate spring. Each Garden of Light will be on display until April 28, boasting up to 4,000 LED-lit flowers.
