Six homeowners in Kennebunkport are opening their enchanting private gardens to the public for one day only to raise money to support ongoing community programming and services at the Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library.

The Annual “Secret Gardens” Tour of Kennebunkport tour will be held Saturday, July 18, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (rain or shine). Early Bird Tickets are $35 each and they can be purchased in advance at the Library (18 Maine Street) and through a special website (details to follow). On the day of the event, tickets will be sold for $40 only at Kennebunkport Consolidated School at 25 School Street.

A program map will be provided that day to all ticket holders to reveal the secret locations of the six participating properties. Visitors will be treated to a wide variety of garden styles and plant types amid lovely natural settings hidden from view behind stone walls, seaside cottages, and privacy hedges. Colorful perennials and annuals, a scenic pond, woodland sculptures, ocean views, a Zen-inspired rock garden, trellised blooms, and many more delights are waiting to be discovered during this special garden tour opportunity.
