Entwined - Bioluminescent-Like LED Forest in Golden Gate Park

Lights will turn off at 9:30 pm each night. Entwined may periodically go dark for short periods to prevent crowding. Entwined is outdoors and spread out over an acre of open space.

Golden Gate Park has transformed Peacock Meadow into an enchanted forest of otherworldly shapes and ever-changing light, the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department and San Francisco Parks Alliance.

The installation will run from December 2nd through February 1st. The project is paid for through private donations to the Park Alliance's Golden Gate Park 150 campaign and does not use city funds. Peacock Meadow sits in the park's east end between McLaren Lodge and the Conservatory of Flowers and across from the new pop-up Welcome Center on JFK Drive.

The Entwined installation creates a whimsical wonderland where visitors can explore paths and sit under a grove of three entwined sculptural trees while practicing social distancing. The trees range from 12 to 20 feet tall with illuminated canopies as large as 30 feet, filling the meadow with changing light. Sculptures comprised of 2,000 LED lights cluster into small flowering bushes at varying heights, further filling the green space with peaks and valleys of radiating light. The variety of lighting effects are inspired by nature and build a sense of awe: Raindrops on the pavement, lighting and thunderstorms, wind blowing tall grass and flowers, and ripples on a pond.

"As the days get darker, this dazzling installation will light the way for park lovers to experience Golden Gate Park in a new and creative way as we close out its 150th Anniversary," said San Francisco Recreation and Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg. "A twilight stroll through the park's east will be truly magical this winter. People can visit the City's official holiday tree in front of McLaren Lodge before exploring Entwined, marveling at the Conservatory's annual light show, and enjoying the 150-foot Observation Wheel and illuminated bandshell in the Music Concourse."
