Kids to Parks Day: Third Saturday Garden Tour

May 21, 2016 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

IMG_8358 - CopyBring the whole family out for the National Park Trust “Kids to Parks Day” on Saturday, May 21! Enjoy a guided tour of Robert Allerton’s Gardens, and then stick around to explore the Park on your own. Hike in the woods, picnic in the Meadow, or feed the fish at the Koi Pond! Opportunities are endless for all ages to discover Allerton.

Allerton Park has 14 formal gardens, created by Robert Allerton between 1899 and 1946. Join one of our Third Saturday Garden Tours (April – October) and experience the beauty of each garden while listening to the history behind its creation.

Garden tours start at 10am in the Visitor Center. Tours typically last 45-60 minutes, and all ages are welcome. No registration is required. Donations are appreciated!
