Cherry Blossom Tour with the Horticulture Team @ Earth Day Festival

April 22, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us for a guided tour to celebrate spring, the Earth, and all things in bloom! An expert horticulturist will lead a guided tour of what’s blossoming around the Urban Farm and in the Cottage Garden across the street, featuring interesting fun facts, and more. The Randall’s Island Park Alliance maintains a variety of planted and themed gardens and landscaped areas throughout the Park, all created using native species and sustainable practices. The gardens provide a beautiful and tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of New York City.

Location: Meet at the Entrance to Scylla Playground
