The garden club will have a field trip to Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales on December 16. The trip will be a self guided tour of the gardens as the Gardens no longer support guided tours. We can tour the gardens, the Pinewood home and have lunch at the nice Palmetto Cafe on site. The gardens have thousands of flowers and plants and has one of the worlds largest Carillon towers that performs concerts daily. Several years ago the Bok Tower Gardens opened a very large childrens’ exploration and play area that is really cool to see.
We will meet at the Heritage Hall at 9:00 and depart for the hour long drive to see the Gardens. We can carpool down, tour, have lunch, tour more if desired and return around 3:00. Participants can purchase their own tickets for the Gardens online at https://boktowergardens.org/ You can also purchase add on tickets to see the Pinewood estate if you desire. Lunch will be off the menu at the cafe at your expense. Be aware that anyone having a membership at Leu Gardens can get into Bok Tower Gardens (FOR FREE) under garden reciprocity. Be sure to take your membership card with you and show it at the gate. So there is no need to pay me anything for tickets as you are responsible for your own ticketing.DO LET ME KNOW IF YOU WISH TO GO ON THIS TOUR. We need to know who is coming so we don’t leave somebody behind! Let’s have a nice tour under nice December temperatures. It will be nice to see gardens where we don’t overheat here in florida. Do take water, hats and sunblock along though as even winter sunshine can fry you here in Florida.
