HERSHEY GARDENS BOTANICAL GARDEN AND ARBORETUM
Recently open for the 2015 season, Hershey Gardens boasts a 23-acre wonderland of beautiful plantings of all sorts. The beauty lies in the surprises each season brings..not everything blooms at one time so expect an everchanging landscape.
Comprised of 4 rose gardens, 5 flowering gardens and 5 varied gardens (coniferous garden, oak grove, herb garden, ornamental grasses and Japanese garden)…there is always something special going on..aside from the show the plantings put on.
A sampling of upcoming events includes:
Sunday, April 26, 2015 – Gardenfest..the Gardens’ annual community free pass day. From 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM, visitors will be able to gather information on different community and garden programs offered by local organizations.
Saturday, May 2, 2015 – Plein Air Workshop..a wonderful opportunity to practice the art of painting outdoors. Instructor Ben Nelson wants the goal of this class to be fearless! Please check here for all the details of this class.
Sunday, May 10, 2015 – Mother’s Day…Moms are admitted free on Mother’s Day..what a nice gift!
