Nordic Lights illuminate KL’s Desa Parkcity for the Year-End Light Festival
This year’s Light Festival features seven different touchpoints for an illuminative stroll around the Park
WITH Christmas and Year-End celebrations around the corner, ParkCity invites all visitors to be mesmerised by its Year-End Light Festival, featuring an array of art installations and illumination displays. The experiential annual event is held at The Waterfront and Central Park in the award-winning masterplan township Desa ParkCity in Kuala Lumpur.
Running from December 1 to February 5 2023, the park is transformed through the use of light, art and colours to showcase an appreciation of Art in Nature. This year’s Light Festival features seven different touchpoints along the designated route to allow visitors an illuminative stroll from The Waterfront to around the Central Park.

Visitors on the route can experience the immersive light displays at each of the touchpoints, such as the Tunnel of Light and Meteor Rain, or take photos with the moving light spectres of the Birds of Peace and Trinity. Other light installations include The Sun, a sustainable art piece made from plastic scraps, and a glowing blue touchpoint called Bridge of Hope. Additionally, on weekends at 8pm and 9pm, visitors can enjoy aurora borealis light displays inspired by the Northern Lights. The aurora borealis light display will run from December 10 to January 1.

Taking its inspiration from the Nordic style, this year’s Light Festival is a reflection of the concept and design of Noöra Residences, the latest integrated residential project in Desa ParkCity. Taken from the Nordic word meaning ‘Light’, Noöra Residences features clean Scandinavian designs, clever solutions and a wide expanse of natural space and light. The project features spacious and well-lit communal spaces built for people to spend quality time together and adopts the concept of a wholesome yet simpler Scandinavian way of life.

At its adjacent neighbourhood mall, The Waterfront, visitors can enjoy dinner or lounge over a cup of coffee while admiring the Light Festival from afar. Red and gold twinkling lights adorn the retail centre which is abuzz with the Christmas atmosphere, making each visit a festive, enjoyable one.
The atrium exudes yuletide cheer with 20-feet Christmas trees all aglow, while the Park’s main entrance sparkles with brilliant butterflies and twinkling lights. Children will especially enjoy the opportunity to board the Kids’ Night Train and LED Animal Rides in the playground. Merry bazaar stalls offer a myriad of gift ideas, and talented buskers perform Christmas classics and well-loved tunes in the evenings.
