2020 GARDEN and TOUR SCHEDULE
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!)
