Open Nights at the Gardens

Stay tuned for Fall 2020 dates.

This is your chance to enjoy the Gardens, and get social-safely!

Bring your friends and play a yard game, drink a beer, eat good food, and listen to local live music.

In addition to enjoying the trails at the Gardens, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy our new beer garden hosted by Whitewater Music Hall, local live music, food from a food truck, and local live music. It is a BYOC (bring your own chair) event, where small groups (10 or under) may sit and relax in our event lawn, practicing social distancing, and enjoy each other’s company or play a yard game (Life-size chess, anyone?), while taking in the Gardens’ beauty.
