Garden Tours

Explore the Gardens.

Try a Tour!

With 323 acres to explore, there is so much to see and do at the Gardens! Not sure where to begin? Try one of our many docent-led tours, from the Gardens’ art exhibits and history to its wild and cultivated spaces.

Highlights Tours

Join us for this hour-long tour through our central gardens. Start by the Kitchen Garden Café and walk through the gardens that surround the Great Lawn. Learn the origin stories of each surrounding garden and about the people who made them possible; hear highlights of the Gardens’ history, and discover more about garden design and botanical elements.

Accessible Cart Tours

Our one-hour Accessible Cart Tours are led by trained Gardens’ docents, rain or shine, on our quiet electric cart. The cart can accommodate up to five (5) passengers. These tours are a wonderful opportunity for those who may not otherwise be able to walk the Gardens. The tour is $10 per person, except on Wednesdays when the accessible cart tours are free.

Specialty Tours

Explore the Gardens more deeply through our other seasonal tours, led by Gardens staff and experienced docents. These tours are offered throughout the season and provide a special in-depth look at Gardens’ topics and different areas of our grounds. Specialty tours are listed on the Calendar below—click through on their titles for more information.
