70+ Exceptional gardens to visit throughout Buffalo Niagara on Thursdays and Fridays in July.
It has been ten years since creative and passionate local gardeners – many not included in any other tours – were brought together in groups from Lewiston to Eden, from Holland to downtown Buffalo, began opening their gardens to the public as part of this unique tour.
Rules for visiting gardens in this unprecedented year
If you see the Open Gardens sign displayed, you’re welcome in! Keep in mind, some gardens may not be open as scheduled. If you’re there for the right hours, but a sign is not posted, an emergency has most likely popped up and the garden is not open. Please:
• Wear your face mask,
• Practice physical distancing of six feet, and
•Don’t touch things in the garden.
Most gardens are generous in size, the gardens are spread over Erie and Niagara counties for select hours, and each garden is open for five times during the month of July. Crowds have not been a problem in the past.
