Gardening enthusiasts will enjoy PAAM’s 14th Annual Secret Garden Tour with a double header garden experience. The day begins with a self-guided walking tour of gorgeous Secret Gardens in Provincetown’s east end. Ticket-holders will receive a map and booklet with stories and details about each garden. Visitors are then invited to the Provincetown Art Association and Museum to tour the Art of the Garden, an exhibition of floral works in air-conditioned galleries. All proceeds from the event benefit PAAM exhibitions and educational programs.
The Secret Garden Tour leads guests through hidden stone paths and crooked wooden walkways into borders and beds of specimen plants, common and exotic flowers, and lush greenery. The owners and tenders of fragrant and visually stunning Provincetown gardens plan to welcome more than 500 visitors.
Free parking for the tour is provided at Benson, Young and Downs Insurance Agency and Gately-McHoul’s Funeral home, found at the end of Harry Kemp Way. A fleet of shuttle-cars makes continuous stops between the parking lots and gardens throughout the day. Tickets to the Secret Garden Tour include admission to PAAM’s galleries for the Art of the Garden exhibition. This event continues to be a success year after year due in part to the kindness of more than fifty dedicated volunteers.
