Garden History Tour Part 2 - July 3
You are signing up for a 75-minute guided tour of Untermyer Park and Gardens at 11:00AM on Sunday, July 3, led by one of our expert volunteer docents.
History Part 2: This tour covers the Color Garden remnants, the Vegetable Garden and Orchard, the Rhododendron Walk and Ruin Garden, the Carriage Trail to the Circular Fountain and the Temple of Love and Rock and Stream Garden.
Part 2 tours are moderately strenuous and cover a little less than 1 mile and a 182-foot vertical descent and ascent.
The History tour highlights the history of the estate as illustrated by the garden areas on this tour route, emphasizing its world famous heyday in the Untermyer years, its dramatic decline after 1940, and the remarkable restoration efforts that have been ongoing from 2011 to the present day. There will be an emphasis on Samuel Untermyer and his wife and their place in early 20th century history as well as discussion of the remarkable architecture of the gardens.
