Gloucester Garden Tour – 2017

The 2017 Gloucester Garden Tour in the Village of Magnolia

Saturday, July 8, 2017

At the dawn of the twentieth century, Magnolia was well known as a vacation destination with a casino and grand hotels.  There were posh stores like Tiffany’s lining Lexington Avenue and mansions along Shore Road.  Join us on a walk down memory lane for the fifth Generous Gardener’s Garden Tour in the quiet seaside village of Magnolia.  This tour includes more than a dozen private gardens including an Olmsted garden.  This tour is a varied mix of cottage gardens, rose gardens and estate gardens with glorious ocean views as you stroll along Shore Road.  It is predominantly a walking tour (1.6 mile) with a few gardens a short drive from downtown Magnolia.

Tickets are $30 per person. Tickets may be purchased the day of the tour.  On the day of the tour, pick up your ticket/booklet with maps and descriptions at the Magnolia Library, 1 Lexington Avenue, Gloucester, MA 01930.

Please no pets.  Rain or Shine.
