& Open House

 

Sunday, April 30, 2017

 

1:00 to  4:00 pm

 

 Each year we open the greenhouses and the complex to the public for one day.
Visitors will be split into small groups and taken on a guided tour of the entire complex. Your guide will explain all the workings of the Conservatory and the Greenhouses. See the flowers in bloom and various plants that will be planted into Londonís city streets and parks.  You will be able to purchase plants from the Friends of the London Civic Garden Complex (Cash or Cheque only).

Before or after your tour, see the displays, then go for a leisurely walk through the park and gardens. Walking/Biking Maps are available at the complex.
It is a wonderful time for everyone to welcome Spring.
