Posted: Updated:

(KATV) Hot Springs- Garvan Woodland Gardens, the botanical garden of the University of Arkansas will be closed for the rest of the year due to the winter storm and power outages.

The 4 ½ miles of wooded shoreline, and rocky inclines with walking paths is decorated with 2 million bulbs that transform approximately 17 acres into a memorable animated holiday display.

Susan Harper, Director of Visitors Services says, "If you have purchased online tickets for Holiday Lights and have not used them, please contact the office next week at 501-262-9300 and we will go through procedures to refund non-validated tickets (tickets which have not been used). At this time, there is still no power at the administrative offices, so please wait to contact us next week."

As always, Garvan Woodland Gardens will also be closed during the month of January.
