Great news, folks! Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the U of A Botanic Garden has announced a new series of winter date nights, featuring an ice slide! Of course, that’s just a part of the offering, but it’s definitely the one that we’re most excited about. Let’s check it out.

The new series is called Date Night Under the Stars. Fittingly, the evenings are geared towards grownups, but still feature tons of activities. Try a tapas plate while you stroll around, enjoy some live music, go snowshoeing, and listen to Indigenous Dark Sky Storytelling.
