National Public Gardens Day, Friday, May 10

Celebrate National Public Gardens Day
Friday, May 10, 2024

Come celebrate National Public Gardens Day with us. Public gardens are a special place that maintain plants for the purpose of education and enjoyment and what better way to enjoy this day than to explore and learn about the Gardens with the talented Horticulture Team.

A series of 30-minute “Conversations in Bloom” with the Gardens’ Horticulture team have been planned throughout the day. You can choose which you would like to attend or stay the day for all them, included with garden admission. We hope you will learn something new about the Gardens and inspire you in your own garden. Reservations are not needed. If you are a member of the Gardens, come early to enjoy a stroll thru the Gardens with the Executive Director, Jennifer D’hollander.
