Get outside with your family this Mother’s Day and celebrate Mom with a picnic at The Stevens-Coolidge Place surrounded by the peak of lilac season. Enjoy live music by Julianne and Barry Johnston of the Brookline Music School. Explore the garden with your little ones. Play croquet, bocce, ring toss, and other lawn games that will be set up throughout the garden. Take a family photo among the beautiful gardens.
The Stevens-Coolidge Place will provide a limited assortment of pastry and beverages to supplement the bring-your-own-picnic atmosphere of the day.
There are thousands of cultivars of lilacs and you can find many of them at The Stevens-Coolidge Place! What better way to discover them than on a horticulturalist-guided tour through the gardens? Tours offered at 10:30AM and 11:30AM. Bring your lilac care questions! And of course, no trip would be complete without a trip to the greenhouse to see what seasonal goodies are for sale to add to your garden. Special arrangements will be available today for Mother’s Day.
