Secret Garden Tour
Save the date! The 2018 Secret Gardens of Cambridge Tour will be held Sunday, June 3rd.
The Secret Gardens of Cambridge, presented on alternate years, is a signature fundraising event of the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library. This special self-guided tour is usually held on an early Sunday in June, just as spring turns to summer. Since 2000, the Friends have been uncovering secret gardens in neighborhoods all across the city and inviting our friends and neighbors to take a peek!
The Secret Gardens tour has featured more than 200 individual gardens in Cambridge, from a hidden swimming pond in a small backyard oasis to a garden that springs to life with thousands of bulbs each year; from a woodland tree-lined front walk to guided contours of border plantings and decorative pots. Some are small and sunny, others are large or shady. Flowers, herbs, sculptures, and stones adorn the deeply diverse variety of gardens found in every nook and cranny of Cambridge.
