Annual Earth Day Celebration

Saturday, April 20, 2019 | 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Thank you to everyone who attended this annual event!

Lakewood is a unique green space in the heart of the city — with 250 acres of ornate gardens, scenic vistas and endless knolls dotted with old-growth trees and rare and native plants — all open to the public.

To celebrate Earth Day, we invite you to visit our spacious grounds and take a behind-the-scenes tour of our historic greenhouses that are still operating today. On the tour, you'll learn about Lakewood's horticultural history, sustainable practices and see what we have in store for this spring's flower beds. After the tour, put your own green thumb to work and plant a perennial to take home and plant in memory of a loved one.

Make a day of it by taking a self-guided tour of the cemetery before or after your greenhouse tour. Self-guided brochures will be available at the event or by downloading the Lakewood mobile app.

For a glimpse of the tour, watch "Lakewood Greenhouse Operations, Then & Now:"

Due to the historic construction inside the greenhouses, we are unable to accommodate wheelchairs or walkers for this tour. You are welcome to explore the grounds with a self-guided tour booklet or see other upcoming events for ADA-friendly opportunities.
