National Public Gardens Day is a day of celebration to raise awareness of America’s public gardens and their important role in promoting environmental stewardship and awareness, plant and water conservation, and education in communities nationwide. This day of celebration is presented by the non-profit American Public Garden’s Association, an organization which serves public gardens and advances them as leaders, advocates, and innovators. The Association’s vision is to create a world where public gardens are indispensable.

A big thank you to Domino’s for providing free parking on National Public Gardens Day!
