The Vanderbilt Garden Association interpreters will offer FREE tours of the formal gardens at the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site on Route 9 in Hyde Park between 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM (weather permitting).

Tours begin at the entrance to the gardens. The volunteer interpreters will discuss the history of the gardens, with a focus on the Vanderbilt ownership and the mission of the not-for-profit Vanderbilt Garden Association to rehabilitate and maintain the plants, shrubs, trees, and statuary in the gardens as they were in the 1930’s just prior to Mr. Vanderbilt’s death. They will also provide information about three major projects the gardens are currently undergoing: the renovation of the Cherry Walk, the replanting of the Rose Garden terraces, and the rehabilitation of the Rose Garden fountain.

Visitors can also visit the 1875 Toolhouse to look at photographs of the gardens taken during and since the Vanderbilt era.

Fee: Free

Our 4th annual garden tea will be held rain or shine. The event is in the spirit of the "Downton Abbey" era, the early 1900's. Would you consider wearing period clothing, party garden wear or even a fancy hat? It isn't necessary but it may be fun!
The event will take place under a tent in the Vanderbilt garden, unless heavy rain is predicted. (In the event of heavy rain, the event will be held at the Wallace Center at the F. D. Roosevelt Presidential Library.)

Parking will be at the main visitors center and there is a moderate walk to the gardens. Very limited transportation will be available. Handicap access is available by pre-arrangement.

The F. W. Vanderbilt Garden Association is an all volunteer group. All funds raised by the tea will be used to help fund the planting and maintenance of the gardens. After the tea, we hope many of you will stroll through our beautiful gardens.
