ANNUAL CHESTER GARDEN TOUR

A Self-Guided Tour of Private Gardens in Chester, NS

Chester (NS) - The Annual Garden Tour in Chester offers a rare peek into some of the most beautiful private gardens in the Village of Chester and area. This self-guided tour, sponsored by the Chester Municipal Chamber of Commerce, takes place rain or shine on Saturday, July 19, 11 am to 4 pm. 

The tour features six exceptional gardens chosen for their diversity in style, size, setting and site conditions, many with ocean views, and also includes a tour of John Risley's greenhouses and stables. Among the featured gardens this year is Fox Hill, overlooking beautiful Marriott's Cove. Oceanview Garden Centre and Landscaping designed all the gardens that surround the main house, guest house, the gazebo, pool house and the area surrounding the pool. Enjoy the ocean view as you stroll through the gardens, which have been described as "breathtaking" and "a once in a lifetime experience." Oceanview Garden Centre and Landscaping staff will be on hand at Fox Hill during the tour to answer any gardening questions you may have. Volunteers will be on hand at all the gardens to help direct garden "tourists" to parking and to the next garden.

Participants will pick up their information packages at the Chester Visitor Information Centre (Old Train Station on North Street) before starting the tour. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 the day of the event and include a $5.00 coupon redeemable at participating local restaurants. Proceeds from this event will be used to support the local Visitor Information Centre, which is operated by the Chester Municipal Chamber of Commerce and is one of the few remaining local VICs in this part of the province.
