Tower Hill Free for Mothers on Mother’s Day Weekend

Friday, April 26, 2013

 

May is one of the most beautiful months for the famous Garden.

How does one show appreciation for the countless hours of cooking and cleaning, nurturing and teaching, and so many other things that Mothers do? Tower Hill Botanic Garden shows it by offering free admission for all Mothers on Mother's Day Weekend, May 11-12. Whether an avid gardener or just one who admires the beauty of nature, all mothers will appreciate a visit to this 132-acre garden paradise, bursting with the colors and fragrances of spring, and located just east of Worcester.

 Families are invited to spend the day by strolling the gardens during this peak of display. Visitors are also welcome to bring picnics, although alcohol is not permitted unless it is purchased in the Café. The Gift Shop will feature many items for Mother's Day gifts, including greeting cards and plants. Consider a membership for Mom, and she can return to the Garden free of charge for a whole year, and get a bouquet of other benefits, like 10% off purchases at local participating garden centers.

The second weekend in May is an ideal time in the Garden when thousands of bulbs are in bloom, as well as many trees and shrubs. Those blooming include Lilacs, Azaleas, Cherries, Honeysuckle, early Rhododendrons, and others. Mothers and their families can walk through formal gardens, meander on woodland paths, or take in the view of Mt. Wachusett and the Wachusett Reservoir. Trained guides will offer tours of the Garden at 11am and 2pm both Saturday and Sunday.

For all "non-Moms," regular admission fees apply; $12 Adults, $9 Seniors, and $7 Youth aged 6-18, Children under 6 and Tower Hill members free. WOO Card holders earn points. Tower Hill Botanic Garden is located at 11 French Drive, Boylston, MA, exit 24 off Route 290. For more information, call (508) 869-6111, or sign on to www.towerhillbg.org.
