Evening Garden Stroll

  • Tuesday, May 10, 2022 – 4:30 pm7:30 pm

Take a break from your weekly grind and come enjoy the gardens during this season's first Evening Garden Stroll. The gardens will remain open until 7:30 pm on Tuesday, May 10.

Be prepared for a sensory overload! If you're like us, every turn you take becomes your favorite view. Very few things can compare to the fresh tapestry created by a spring garden—the varying color and texture as our woody friends and perennial favorites flush with new growth and blooms. Close your eyes and take a deep breath to appreciate the sweet smell of a banana shrub or the spicy scent of your favorite dianthus. Mark your calendars, grab your family and friends, and come take a stroll and this special night.

Finley-Nottingham Rose Garden

We're honored to have Phil Hathcock's sculptures on display at the Arboretum. Phil's love and appreciation of nature and the natural world are evident in every piece he creates. His love of rocks and boulders and a curiosity of how rock formations evolve from geological and natural events led Phil to a career of working with stones.

If you'd like a guided tour, meet one of our talented tour guides at the Bobby G. Wilder Visitor Center at 5:00 pm or 6:00 pm. They would enjoy sharing what they know and answering any questions you may have.

The Evening Garden Strolls are scheduled every month through October. Mark your calendars for June 14, July 12, August 9, September 13, and October 11 and keep in touch. We 're partnering with a few groups to give the evenings an added twist.
