Troy’s annual Hidden Garden tour is back for its 16th iteration. The self guided tour takes you around Troy into around 20 private hidden gardens.
“Most people only ever see the facades of our brownstones from the streets,” said Peter Grimm, president of the Friends of Prospect Park. “This is a special kind of event that invites visitors into the hidden, green spaces of our city. It really showcases the humanity and livability of Troy.”
Now in its 16th year, the Hidden Garden Tour is a fundraiser to benefit Troy’s Prospect Park held rain or shine on Thursday, May 21 from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. In the past, the event has consistently attracted more than 200 tourgoers. Organizers believe this year could bring record numbers because of the growing excitement and interest in Troy.
The self-guided walking tour features approx. 20 private backyard gardens in the Historic Sage College, Washington Park and adjoining neighborhoods of downtown Troy.
Tickets are currently on sale and all proceeds benefit projects in Troy’s Prospect Park.
