Jamaica Plain Garden Tour
July 14 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$2 – $30
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.
Interested in volunteering as a garden sitter for the tour? Contact Annie Wolf at email@example.com or 617.542.7696 x2127 or sign up here.
Purchase tickets in advance to save time and money. No need to print anything; we'll have a will-call list at the tour start
The tour start point, J.P. Licks, is a 10-minute walk from the Green Street T stop (Orange Line) and is also accessible by bike using the Southwest Corridor Park. Parking is available on the street or in the municipal parking lot behind the buildings on the 700 block of Centre Street (odd-numbered side), and accessible from Burroughs Street or Thomas Street.
