Mother’s Day Garden Tour
at Sycamore Hill Gardens
Sunday, May 8, 10am-4pm

Due to popular demand, we have sold out of tickets for this Sunday’s Mother’s Day Garden Tour event at Sycamore Hill Gardens. As of this morning, online and off-site ticket sales are no longer available and we will unfortunately not be able to provide day-of tickets this year.

We are sorry that not everyone will be able to attend, but we are so grateful for the outpouring of support that Baltimore Woods Nature Center has received for our most important annual fundraiser.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature!

Bring the family to Sycamore Hill Gardens in Marcellus for a one-of-a-kind, outdoor garden experience like no other! The Garden Tour is a not-to-be-missed spring event in Central New York. For many it’s a yearly tradition and for newcomers, the gardens are awe-inspiring. At this self-guided event, you can stroll the lawns and paths through 30+ acres of these vibrant gardens. Bring a picnic lunch, find a cozy spot, and soak up the afternoon sunshine by the pond at this fun family day full of exploration and wonder around every turn.

All garden tour proceeds benefit Baltimore Woods Nature Center in its mission to connect people to nature through environmental education, recreation, play, and research, both at the Baltimore Woods nature preserve and across Central New York.

Sycamore Hill Gardens is located
at 2130 Old Seneca Turnpike, Marcellus.
Parking is free. No pets please!

Updates will be posted to our website.
