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.
The Ringling is pleased to bring Dr. Ed Gilman, an international expert on trees and hurricane preparedness, to work with homeowners in our community. The focus will be on practical measures that will help homeowners prepare, and in necessary, recover, from a storm.
Tour the “living collections” of the Bayfront Gardens. This walking tour will introduce you to interesting botanical specimens on the estate while providing a historic overview of the development of the property.
