As awe-inspiring as any work of art, The Ringling Bayfront Gardens are a living treasure. Courting couples statuary watch over Mable’s Rose Garden. The shade the majestic Banyan trees provide. The delight inspired by the whimsy of the Dwarf Garden. The echoes from the past where the Circus King finally rests in the Secret Garden. The cooling breezes that blow along the Bayfront Promenade and Millennium Tree Trail. This is a place of nature’s making and man’s design.
Learn more about what trees have to offer in Central Florida and how we can be more effective stewards of this all-important resource. This program will include a talk and discussion in the Education Center followed by a walking tour tailored to the topic.
