Guided Bayfront Garden Tours
Regularly scheduled Bayfront Gardens Tours are on hiatus for the summer and will resume in the fall. However, tours for groups of 10 or more may still be scheduled this summer by calling 358-3180 at least two weeks in advance.
The walking tour of the “living collections” of the Bayfront Gardens will introduce you to some of the key botanical specimens on the estate while providing a historic overview of the development of the property. This is a great way to learn about the local flora.
The tour is 90 minutes in length and covers approximately 1 mile. Some of the tour is “off the beaten path” so we strongly suggest comfortable footwear and clothing. Visitors are welcome to bring their own water but it will be available for purchase.
Tours may be canceled due to inclement weather. Refunds or a rain check will be available. Tickets are $20/$10 for Ringling Members.
Self-Guided Bayfront Gardens Tour
Mable’s Rose Garden, the Secret Garden, the Dwarf Garden, the Banyan trees and the Millennium Tree Trail are just some of the sites you’ll discover as you wander about on a self guided tour of the 66-acres of the astonishingly beautiful Ringling campus. The Bayfront Gardens are availble for touring daily.
