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 and all of it's venues are closed today. Happy Holidays!
The Ringling and all its venues will close on Thursday, December 31 at 5:00 PM and will remain closed on New Years Day, January 1, 2016. We will re-open on Saturday, January 2. Happy New Year!
Mrs. Ringling’s informal Secret Garden was her refuge from her responsibilities as a society hostess. The Ringling has recently redesigned and replanted the garden in keeping with its original spirit. However, it is now filled with educational opportunities for the home gardener.
All of us are looking for ways to introduce fewer chemicals into our environment. One of the leaders in this field, Dr. A.D. Ali, has been advising The Ringling in this process and will share his insights on pest control management for homeowners.
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.
