Veterans and military personnel enter Tower Hill for free on Veterans Day

Tower Hill Botanic Garden CEO Grace Elton is pleased to announce that veterans and military personnel will receive free admission this Veterans Day.

A valid military ID grants entry to the 132 acre property located in Boylston, just 10 miles from downtown Worcester, on Saturday, Nov. 11. In addition, up to five family members will receive 20 percent off their entry fee.

“This is our small way of saying thanks to the men and women who have served and are serving our country, as well as their families,” said Elton. “It is because of you that we are able to share the joy of public gardens and our own backyard gardens.”

Visitors on Veterans Day can enjoy the Terrarium Show, hikes through the surrounding woodlands, the fully accessible Garden Within Reach, views of Mt. Wachusett, an art exhibit, the Garden Shop, Twigs Cafe, the Wild Rumpus Stickwork Exhibit by internationally renowned artist Patrick Dougherty, and more.

Year-round, military personnel, veterans, and their families will receive a 20 percent discount off admission throughout 2017. Their entry fee will be $12 for adults, $8 for seniors 65 and over, and $4 for youth 6 to 18. Children 5 and under are always free.
