Summer Showcase

June 17 – September 10, 2023

Throughout the summer, enjoy the Paine gardens in full bloom and explore nearly four acres of perennials, grasses, and annuals, trees, and shrubs. New varieties and unusual combinations inspire every level of garden enthusiast, and the relaxing atmosphere offers a respite for visitors of all ages. Follow any of the paths to enjoy a stroll among a variety of florals and plants, and spend time taking in the sights and aromas at various seating areas. Admission is required to tour the gardens.

Major garden highlights include the Front Lawn and Formal Garden. Peak bloom is anticipated as late August, but is dependent upon weather conditions.
