In gratitude to the Town of Boylston and to mark a deeply valued three decade neighborly relationship, Tower Hill Botanic Garden is pleased to announce Boylston Days. Boylston residents will receive free admission to the garden on Thursdays now through Thanksgiving 2017.
Since moving to Tower Hill in 1986 and establishing itself as a botanic garden, the Worcester County Horticultural Society has been proud of its home in the bucolic town of Boylston. The 132 acre Tower Hill property, just northeast of the town center and overlooking the Wachusett reservoir and the rolling hills of Worcester County, is a spectacular setting for the gardens.
The active support of the Boylston community has also been instrumental in helping the nonprofit to carry out its goal to make the world a better place for people and plants through volunteering, donating, becoming members, and spreading the word about Tower Hill to friends, neighbors, relatives, and co-workers.
By being open free-of-charge to town residents one day a week, Boylston visitors will be able to take advantage of all that Tower Hill has to offer including hiking trails, free programming, flower shows, music performances, art exhibits, its restaurant and garden shop, and a diverse collection of prized plants selected, cared for, and arranged to inspire. Studies continue to show the health benefits of spending time closer to nature, such as walking, learning, and gardening.
Boylston Days are also made possible in part by the support of the Boylston Cultural Council.
Tower Hill is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursdays. In addition, Tower Hill provides the Boylston Public Library with a limited number special passes that provide free admission for Boylston residents on any day that the destination is open throughout the year.
For more information on availability and use of library passes, please contact the Boylston Public Library. For information on upcoming events please visit towerhillbg.org or call 508-869-6111.
