The Tours of Open Gardens offers twelve groupings of premier gardens open, for select hours, on Thursdays and Fridays in July – from Niagara County to East Aurora and Holland. Many of the gardens are not on any other tour, so this is your only chance to visit them.
Get your Tours of Open Gardens and Garden Events Guide booklet – and keep it in the glove compartment. It has become the great girlfriends’ or date getaway for lovely summer days. The gardens are beautiful, there are no crowds, and the gardeners are friendly if you want to ask questions.
We made it easy to plan your day, with a map showing the gardens, and suggested routes to see them all. Be sure to check the hours each garden is open. You’ll have eight days to visit (or re-visit!) the gardens throughout the month. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more unique garden tour at this price!
If you see the Open Gardens sign out, you're welcome in! If you're there for the right hours, but a sign is not posted, an emergency has most likely popped up and the garden is not open.
The Tours of Open Gardens and Garden Events Guide is available, for a $5 donation, at the retail outlets listed below.
