L. J. Historical Society 2017 Secret Garden Tour

  • La Jolla Historical Society 780 Prospect Street La Jolla, CA, 92037 United States (map)

Every spring, the La Jolla Historical Society extends a rare invitation to the public to stroll behind the garden gates of some of La Jolla’s loveliest, secluded gardens, normally concealed from view by strategic growth of mature trees, vines or foliage. The Tour aims to feature a variety of garden styles. Past tours have showcased some of La Jolla’s large estate gardens, as well as intimate cottage-style, romantic Mediterranean, formal French and English gardens. The locations are kept secret and only revealed in the program distributed the day of the Tour. The gardens will again be enhanced with music performed by local musicians, tabletop displays by local designers and merchants, and by La Jolla artists in the process of capturing each home and garden’s unique beauty. The Secret Garden Tour raises awareness of the La Jolla Historical Society and its efforts to celebrate this unique community. The Tour generates essential financial support for the Society’s mission to make La Jolla’s diverse past a relevant part of contemporary life, with opportunities for residents and visitors to explore history, art, ideas and culture. Platinum Tour $150. Self-guided tour $50. Starts at Wisteria Cottage
