Annual Field Trip: Serenity on the Hudson at Wave Hill and Fort Tryon Park

June 12, 2018 8:00 am to 6:00 pm

Wave Hill Garden in the Bronx

Join the staff of BBG and landscape architect David Dew Bruner for a special tour of Wave Hill and the Heather Garden of Fort Tryon Park. Wave Hill, a public garden and cultural center in the Bronx overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades, contains a notable tree collection serving as the cornerstone of the landscape, and 13 designed garden areas on 28 acres. An aquatic garden hugged with tropical plants. A wild garden championed by William Robinson offers winding pathways and spectacular river views. A conservatory filled with ferns, bromeliads, rainforest cacti plus The Cactus and Succulent House which displays plump and spiny plants from arid regions of the world. And the Elliptical Garden featuring primarily native plants using a formal design pattern.

The Heather Garden at Fort Tryon is a three-acre garden boasting one of the largest heath and heather collections on the East Coast, a 600-linear-foot perennial border, and over 550 varieties of plants, including trees, shrubs, perennials, and bulbs. 

This trip, a great way to spend a day with like-minded garden lovers, is not to be missed.

Bring a bag lunch (limited access to a garden cafe is available for those wishing to purchase lunch).
