National Public Gardens Day

Friday, May 11, 2018

National Public Gardens Day is celebrated nationwide to promote public gardens’ important role in leading environmental stewardship and awareness. Join the festivities and get to know the Gardens with a special behind-the-scenes tour of our Production Greenhouses conducted by Bellingrath’s Horticultural Management Team. Find out how we grow our signature displays that provide beauty to more than 125,000 visitors every year.

The one-hour tour starts at 10:30 AM and is included in your regular Gardens admission. Garden Admission is free for members, $13.00 for adults and $7.50 for children ages 5-12. Registration is requested as space is limited. Registration starts on April 1. To register, call 251.459.8864.
