The Gardens at Elm Bank

Open 7 Days a Week

Garden Hours

10am - 7pm; Last entry at 5:30 pm


Last year we opened the gardens early, extending our hours and days as well as lengthening our open season. We became the heart of our community in a way we never had before. Our visitation numbers doubled as guests from all over Massachusetts came for the safe and open spaces. They truly appreciated the power, peace and connectedness of a beautiful garden. We have, once again, opened early and extended our hours and garden season.

Please make a contribution to our Garden Opening Fund and give us the help we need to continue maintaining and improving our gardens and guests’ experience. Thank you!
