Discounted Secret Gardens Tour Tickets on Sale Memorial Day Weekend

Jamestown, NY – A highlight of your summer can be Audubon Community Nature Center’s Secret Gardens Tour. And you can save 20% by purchasing a presale ticket.

The 12th presentation of this welcome summertime treat will be from 10:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 1.

The six gardens for 2017 are in Lakewood, Sinclairville, and Jamestown, New York, and showcase both new locations and oft-requested repeats. A novelty for this year is a featured vegetable garden.

Whether you garden in feet or acres, you will take home ideas for your very own patch.

Hours for this self-guided tour have been extended, as several of the plots are huge. Plan to wear comfortable walking shoes and be inspired by beautiful and unique gardens.

Presale tickets for $12 go on sale starting Memorial Day weekend at these locations:

  • Audubon Community Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Road, Jamestown
