Heronswood Garden: Open Every Friday

When our local Heronswood Garden in Kingston reopened, it started out with a handfull of open days each year. Now it is open to the public for self-guided tours every Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (with the last Garden entry at 2:30 p.m.). The entry fee is $10 per person and a map is included. The Garden is disabled accessible. There will be specialty plant vendor sales on Fridays. Of course, there are still 4 seasonal open days every yeary. These events include lectures, guided tours, and plant sales.
