Neighbors and garden enthusiasts can enjoy a tour of Joslin Garden on one of three Open Garden Days. Opening Day, on Saturday, April 29 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. will be followed by two additional open days, on the following Saturdays, May 6 & May 13 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
The Garden, located at 2431 West Lake Drive, was developed by William and Mary Coker Joslin and spans more than four rolling, wooded acres, with an extensive variety of rare and native plants.
Owned and managed by the City of Oaks Foundation, the Garden and Joslin House are being transformed into a public garden in partnership with Raleigh’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department. This will be the first time that the Garden will be open for more than one day per year.
Out of respect for the neighbors, guests are asked to park on only one side of West Lake Drive. Please note that there are no public restroom facilities on the property.
