Thursday nights just got a little more interesting. Add some adventure to your week and start the weekend early with date nights at the University of Alberta Botanic Gardens, with a new date night experience every week. Wondering what to expect? Every week there’s a new themed event, from the classic outdoor movie (how romantic!) or the Taiko drumming lessons.

The best part about these date nights? Most are included free with admission to the gardens ($13.50), making it an inexpensive way to spice up your summer date night.
The Garden Bar will be open, serving wine and beer. You can bring your own picnic (no BBQs or alcohol, please) purchase a light meal at the outdoor Perks Patio Café, and breathe in the quiet tranquility of the Garden in the twilight. Simply pay admission at the Gate, and enjoy your evening!
