3rd Saturday Garden Tours at Allerton Park

Saturday, September 18, 2021

Allerton Park has 14 formal gardens, created by Robert Allerton between 1899 and 1946. Reserve your spot to attend one of our Third Saturday Garden Tours (April - October) to experience the beauty of each garden while listening to the history behind its creation. Each tour takes you through several of the formal gardens at Allerton and around the exterior of the Mansion. You will learn about the history of the estate and the man who created it, including information about the most iconic sculptures in the Park. For more information, contact Mindy Brand at brand@illinois.edu or call 217-333-3287. Find the map of the Formal Gardens here - https://allerton.illinois.edu/maps/#tab-2 (Please note the tour will not include all of the gardens.)
