National Public Gardens Day 2013

May

01

Join the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens in celebrating National Public Gardens Day on Friday, May 10th & Saturday, May 11th, 2013  from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. each day.   Admission to the Gardens and Galleries is free with the coupon provided by Better Homes and Gardens.

Because the official date for NPGD coincides with the final day of our annual Very Special Arts Festival, we are extending the offer for free admission with coupon to Saturday as well.  So, you are welcome to visit either day.  Please be aware that from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday May 10th, the Museum will be hosting children from around the Greater Jacksonville area for a festival that takes place throughout the Museum galleries.

On Saturday at 2 p.m. there will be a guided tour of the Gardens with one of our docents.  The tour will discuss the history and design elements of the beautiful Cummer Gardens, which are listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and will also share information about key plants on our campus.

The Gardens are also a wonderful place to enjoy a box lunch from our TreeCup Café, make a sketch in your sketch book, relax under a shade tree while enjoying the  cool breeze, or take a photo of one of the oldest oak trees in Jacksonville. However you choose to enjoy being outside, we hope you will spend National Public Gardens Day with The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens.
