Discover ten beautiful new gardens in Dundas, Greensville and Carlisle!

A Celebration of Art and Gardens ~ 23rd Anniversary

Secret Gardens Tour 2016 posterPut on your wide-brimmed sunhat, maybe bring your umbrella, wear your flat shoes, bring your camera – and be prepared to be inspired, enchanted or even have your breath taken away! Once again the Carnegie Gallery has organized their annual self-guided garden tour. This year the tour features four gardens in Dundas, five in Greensville, and one in Carlisle.  The largest garden, just north of Carlisle, is 16 acres with a 1/2 acre pond; the smallest is attached to an 1865 cottage in Dundas.

Buy your ticket beforehand (tickets may be reserved and picked up the day of the tour). Your purchase includes a self-guided tour map as your ticket, door prizes, a poster, and complementary refreshments in the charming Carnegie Gallery “Tea Room”. A special addition to the day is a LIVE painting demonstration outside the Gallery by Laurie Wonfor Nolan from 11am to 1pm. Watch a great plein air painter in action and see examples of her artwork in the TBA section of the Carnegie gallery.

For a detailed description of one of this year’s entice worthy gardens, see The Spectator’s feature article by Rob Howard Country garden takes your breath away.

Cost is $20.
