Historic Albany Hidden City Garden Tour

garden tour 2008

One of the stops on last year's tour.

The theme of this year's house and garden tour through Center Square and the Hudson/Park neighborhood is "Mixed Use: Historic Houses and Sustainable Gardens" and it will highlight "how urban gardeners and historic property owners are doing their part in the sustainable energy movement."

The tour is June 18 from 5-8 pm. Tickets are $15 before June 11 -- and $20 after that (they're available at the Historic Albany offices and the Ben and Jerry's on Lark).

i love these home tours (obviously, haha). last year the house and garden tour was PACKED! i remember waiting in line outside one home for like 30 minutes! wowza.

Pfft. I'm waiting for the tour where you get to go through peoples' drawers and closets. I bet that's where the REAL treasures of Center Square are hiding...

It is a great tour. I did it a few years ago and wish I had the time to get in all of the places. Some of the best were the most modest. It was also fun to slip through peoples houses on the way to the gardens.

The University Club (Dove & Washington) is on the tour and is offering a "Prime Rib & More" buffet for Garden Tourists -- $25 includes soup, salad, buffet, dessert & coffee -- get a 10% discount when you show your ticket! Call 518-463-1151 for reservation.

My daughter just started private swim lessons at Ciccotti Center in Colonie. She has only been to two but so far she loves it. They also seem to be flexible with scheduling for the private lessons - doesn't need to be at a set day and time each week.

Swim lessons for young children?
