Autumn Highlights Tour of the Heather Garden

November 5, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Event Navigation

Join public garden designer Ronda M. Brands for a behind-the-scenes look at the particular design emphasis on the Heather Garden’s autumn assets, and the plant selections made to ensure a remarkable blend of fall colors throughout the three-acre site with its 600+ varieties of plants, trees, and shrubs.

Brands and colleague Lynden Miller have served as garden consultants to the Fort Tryon Park Trust since 2009. Learn how they worked with the park’s gardeners and the Olmsted Brother’s original 1935 plant list to strengthen and rejuvenate the Heather Garden to make it a destination with horticultural interest in every season. Their Framework Plan also equipped the Fort Tryon Park Trust and NYC Parks gardeners to best sustain the garden for future generations!

This program is made possible in part by the Greenacre Foundation.
