Troy Hidden Garden Tour 2018

The popular Troy Hidden Garden Tour returns Thursday, May 24. Tour blurbage:

The self-guided walking tour features approx. 30 private backyard gardens in the Historic Sage College, Washington Park and adjoining neighborhoods of downtown Troy.
While most of the gardens are approximately the same size, about 20 feet by 30 feet, they vary greatly in style. Some of the gardens feature charming pathways, fountains and pools. Some are filled with flowers, while others have more plants and vegetables -- all lovingly tended by gardeners of all skill levels.

The tour is from 4-7:30 pm (rain or shine). It is, in our experience, a nice evening and a different way to explore the neighborhoods just to the south of downtown Troy.

Tickets are $10 and available online. (They're also available day-of at the check-in table at Russel Sage.) The tour is a fundraiser for the Friends of Prospect Park.

Albany House and Garden Tour
Another popular event of this type -- the Hidden City House & Garden Tour in Albany -- is June 21 this year. It's a collaboration of the Center Square Association, Hudson/Park Neighborhood Association, and Historic Albany Foundation.

Tickets are currently $20 and available online. (The price increases $5 on June 16.)
