Tours & Tickets

Saturday, June 12

Self-guided tours of private and community gardens, hosted by the Providence Preservation Society — 10 am to 4 pm

Guests will enjoy exclusive self-guided access to a selection of private gardens at historic homes, a community garden that celebrates the city’s diversity, and a Colonial Revival garden stewarded by PPS. Located in four city neighborhoods from the East Side to Elmwood, the eight featured gardens will exhibit a variety of plantings and contemporary interpretations of historic garden design. Check-in locations and a map of all participating gardens will be shared with attendees directly via email in advance of the tour.

In light of COVID-19 restrictions, a limited number of tour tickets will be available. All tickets MUST be purchased in advance. All attendees must wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines. The events are entirely outdoors. Due to garden capacity limits, guests may experience short wait-times for entry at some tour locations.
