All of the gardens are in the Melville Ave. area of Dorchester. This beautiful tree lined street boasts some of Dorchester’s most impressive homes. All of the proceeds from the tour go to benefit Dorchester Park, the 26 acre Olmstead designed gem that runs from Adams St. all the way through to the Carney hospital on Dorchester Avenue. The ticket price includes a wine and cheese reception in one of the gardens after the tour, from about 3 PM to 6PM. Please spread the word to anyone who may be interested! Garden clubs, friends, gardeners and anyone who has a love for the park and beautiful flowers are invited.
Interested people can phone or come by Cedar Grove Gardens and simply leave a check or a credit card number. Anyone at the store can take their information, and their name will be put on the guest list.
Tickets can also be purchased on this website using the Paypal button below or at the top right of this site’s home page.
