Outside of fundraising events there are three different ways to visit the garden and explore the wonders of an Olmsted Brothers design: Wanders, Open Days and Tours
New Membership Benefit in 2018 - Open Wanders on Tuesday and Friday
April - October: The garden is open for members and three guests to wander the grounds at will, take pictures, eat a picnic on the lawn or simply to sit and enjoy the sunshine and the shadows.
10:00 am, to 1:00 pm.
Keep an eye on the events page for special Wander days when something is in bloom that we think you really must see
Open Days: Check the website for opportunities to visit on the weekend when something special and seasonal is in bloom - one of those must see plants
Tours: The Dunn Gardens are open to the public for docent-led guided tours.
Our regular tour schedule runs from April 1 through July, and from September 1 through October. The gardens are closed in August and on those days on which special events are scheduled.
Tours last about 1.5 to 2 hours and are held on the following days:
- Thursdays: 1 p.m.
- Fridays: 1 p.m.
- Saturdays: 10 a.m.
