Make the Concord Museums 25th Annual Garden Tour a part of your weekend. This Friday and Saturday, June 6 & 7, seven private gardens in Concord will be open for viewing from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm – tickets can be purchased online at www.concordmuseum.org (through 5 pm today June 5, 2014) or by calling 978 369 9763 x 216 or in person at the Concord Museum day of tour.
The Concord Museum’s Garden Tour has become a New England tradition for garden lovers from near and far. Each of the seven private gardens reflects the individual interests and passions of the owners and their families and will inspire both new gardeners designing their first perennial bed and accomplished landscapers with acres of “garden rooms.”
The tour of Concord-area gardens is self-guided and self-paced, beginning each day at 9:00 a.m. and continuing until 4:00 p.m. Garden-goers should arrive at the Concord Museum to pick up their maps prior to starting out. Tickets are good for either or both days, but each garden may only be visited once.
DIRECTIONS: The Concord Museum is easily accessible from Route 495 or Route 128 and Route 2 and is located at the intersection of Lexington Road and Cambridge Turnpike, ¼ mile east of Concord Center. The Museum’s entrance is on Cambridge Turnpike; parking is free. The Museum is wheelchair accessible.
