Longwood from Home

With Light debuting in a few short days, and a spectacular Festival of Fountains season of dancing fountains, brilliant blooms, and more, our Gardens are ready for you to make beautiful memories this summer. Read on for details about our special Light Nights, behind-the-scenes tours, our latest Beauty in the Making Moment, and much more. 

Get Your Glow On

In just 8 days, Light: Installations by Bruce Munro transforms our Gardens into a spectacular world of wonder and imagination designed by acclaimed artist Bruce Munro. On the second Friday of each month throughout the display, join our fantastically fun themed Light Nights. Enjoy live music, fountain performances, family activities, and more—all inspired by Light.

Growing vegetables and other edibles can provide endless rewards and a bountiful harvest … and with perennial edibles, you can expand your garden and create an even more interesting design.

Beauty in the Making Moment
Our Longwood Reimagined project is progressing... and our new restaurant and event space is really beginning to take shape! We started assembling the 600 pieces of structural precast concrete that will form the columns, beams, walls, and roof of this exciting new building. Using pre-cast concrete (as opposed to pouring concrete in-place, onsite) offers the advantage of pouring the concrete in a controlled environment so the building can often be assembled more quickly. We should have our 25,500-square-foot precast structure in place in just a few weeks! Later this summer, the decorative front wall panels for the building (also precast) will be installed.
Want to learn more? Join staff on July 14 or August 18 at 6:30 pm for Longwood Reimagined Member Talks. It will be your chance to learn more about this extensive project, the work that has been done to date, and what's coming next. 
Free, timed Member reservations are required for all Membership levels, except Gardens Premium Members and Innovators, on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays if arriving after 3 pm through June 29. From June 30 through October 30, Member reservations are required for all Membership levels, except Gardens Premium Members and Innovators, on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays if arriving after 3 pm.
