Free After Three Thursdays at The Botanic Garden


Posted: June 25, 2018

See another side of the Tower Hill Botanic Garden with this year's new programming, "Free After Three" Thursdays. Aside from the spectacular formal gardens, woodland trails, art shows and tours of what's in bloom - visitors can also now enjoy a beer garden with local craft brews, a farm-fresh menu, as well as special fee-based programs including yoga in the gardens, ChiRunning, family caterpillar hunts, firefly walks, and night photography. 

Every Thursday evening until August 2018 from 3 PM - 9 PM enjoy the beautiful gardens of Tower Hill Botanic Garden for free. 

From 4 PM - 8:30 PM at the Beer Garden, you can choose from seasonal local craft brews, with a new brewer presented each week. Wine lovers don't despair - wine and mocktails will be available as well a "pretzel wall" with various warm dipping sauces. 

Try for a seat, or bring a blanket to spread out for a picnic on the great lawn with cafe fare like shrimp kabobs, flatbread and unique items like the muffuletta sandwich; a New Orleans classic.

Every Thursday there will be lawn games, a garden tour, community conversations and yoga (registration required). And for an extra fee, participate in a range of fun and educational classes.
