We're delighted to present the first annual Jamaica Plain Garden Tour! Come enjoy unique access to over twenty private gardens in the Sumner Hill and Central neighborhoods of JP, an area full of charming historical homes and lush perennial gardens. Sites along the route range from creative urban spaces to formal gardens in the English style, to rambling woodland landscapes. Many are hidden gems which you might never otherwise see, featuring beautiful stonework, water elements, and rare specimen plants. Our gratitude goes to the garden owners for opening up these magical spaces in support of the Trustees' 56 community gardens and parks citywide. Member & nonmember prices are $20/$25 in advance and $24/$30 at the door.
For tickets, or to volunteer for 2.5 hours in exchange for a free ticket, go to thetrustees.org/jpgt
