Tips for visiting on Mother’s Day Weekend

We wanted to take a moment and thank all who have visited this spring for your patience as we experience a greater than expected interest in this season’s blooms. While increasing visitation is good news for Tower Hill’s long-term vitality, we understand how surprising and disappointing it can be to arrive on a sunny day and have trouble parking at your favorite garden.

We are working each day to improve the arrival experience for the short-term. A major parking expansion and new gatehouse are in the planning stages and will transform the arrival experience in the coming years. In the meantime, if you’re planning on visiting this weekend, please be aware that we expect to be busiest between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Because parking is limited, please consider carpooling, arriving before or after the rush, or visiting on Friday if possible.

“Please know that your support through this time of transition, as we add gardens, plants, and programs, is invaluable,” said CEO Grace Elton. “Our beautiful gardens couldn’t exist without you.”
