Free Manito Park tree tour this Saturday | Events
Let's face it, when you think of Manito Park, you think of flowers. From the stately Duncan Garden, to the fragrant Rose Hill, to the anything-goes atmosphere at the "Dahlia Trial Garden," well, Manito's attention-seeking flowers are all conspiring to make you forget about the park's wonderful trees.
That's where the Friends of Manito come in. The volunteer group is offering a free guided tour of Manito's trees this Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Meet in the Manito Meeting room, just east of the Gaiser Conservatory. From there, you'll tour the north and east portions of the park.
The Friends will provide you with written reference material, which you can keep to keep for future visits to the park. The tour should take about two hours, so bring good walking shoes. And try not to get distracted by the gorgeous display happening in the Perennial Garden - this tour is about the trees, people!
