2020 GARDEN  and TOUR SCHEDULE

COMING SOON!!

2020 GARDEN HOURS

The Gardens are open to the public 

Wednesdays thru Sundays  10 - 7 - Mid-May, June, July and August 

Weekends 10 - 4:30 - September

The Gardens are closed October 1 thru May 15

 

The gates may be closed occasionally due to concerns for the safety of visitors when stairs or conditions may make the gardens unsafe.

Advice to visitors:

This garden is historic, so we must remind you that features are rustic. Stone stairs do not have handrails and are very uneven.

A single  restroom is available in the Corbin Art Center, which may, or may not, be open on the day you visit.

 

Please no dogs or other pets inside the gates.

DOCENT GUIDED TOURS

THE ONE HOUR TOURS ARE COMPLIMENTARY

Step back in time and experience this unique garden as it looked in 1915.  

 

Learn about the discovery, the carefully planned restoration and the 

two influential families of early Spokane who made this their backyard!

 

Dedicated volunteers lead the tours. Volunteering to become a docent is a great way to learn more about the Gardens. Docents are well-trained and happily share details about the plantings and the history.

Ever wonder if there are original plants in the Gardens?    

 

The answer is YES.   These original plants  date back to the beginnings of the Gardens

American Elm — very large tree to the right as you enter the Main Gate

Cottonwood Tree — near the work sheds. City Arborist says this is likely the offshoot of the original tree

Linden Tree — at the base of the steps to the Rose Arbor

Lilacs — in the Lilac Grove (and spreading!)
