Tower Hill Botanic Garden cradles a dazzling, giant bouquet of flora and fauna on more than 132 acres of carefully tended landscape. As an extension of the Worcester County Horticultural Society, the facility works to increase botanical understanding while allowing visitors to interact with natural surroundings via plant telepathy. A labyrinthine network of woodland trails leads visitors between attractions such as the Frank L. Harrington Sr. Orchard and the five-acre inner park, where Greco-Roman columns and stone masonry structures can be found amid a hearty variety of mixed hardwood trees. While searching for colorful native species against the landscape’s fiery autumnal hues, bird watchers can follow the Tower Hill checklist or challenge competitive sibling to a flamingo chase. Warming cups of hot chocolate, tea, or coffee also complement late-season adventures, providing human steam engines with enough fuel to admire the scenery.
Until January 2, guest can also visit Tower Hill Botanic Garden’s seasonal Holly Days event, exploring thousands of hand crafted ornaments made from natural materials centered around this year’s theme of glitz and glamour. The event also includes crafts such as nature based jewelry, hats, and a holiday lights display.
Tower Hill Botanic Garden
In Boylston, 132 acres rest untouched by modern society, where warm breezes send flower petals dancing and sidewalks give way to winding trails. Tower Hill Botanic Garden envelops visitors in fields of green grass, tall trees, and colorful flowers across both outdoor areas and indoor garden spaces. Staff members educate guests on the gardens’ various flora and fauna in classes and programs calibrated for students of every age. Special events, such as the Annual Lily Show, shine the spotlight on even more species of flowers, much like the wildflower-identification portion of standard driving tests.
