Gardens By The Sea

  • 23 Broad St Stonington, CT, 06378 United States (map)

Stonington Garden Club cordially invites you to Gardens by the Sea, our triennial garden tour, on June 9 & 10, 2017. This easy walking tour will feature a handpicked collection of rarely seen gardens behind the walls and gates of Stonington’s historic properties. Labels will highlight plantings for identification and knowledgeable Garden Club members will be on hand to answer questions.


Artists in the Garden!  Visitors to the 2017 Gardens by the Sea Tour will have the unique opportunity to experience gardens as artistic inspiration. Weather permitting, a broad representation of local, “en plein air” artists will be painting in select gardens to enhance your enjoyment of the Tour.

In addition, a tented Marketplace in historic Wadawanuck Square will showcase a variety of vendors offering home and garden décor, tools, clothing, accessories and crafts. Stonington Village restaurants and charming shops welcome you for coffee, dining, gifts, fashion and more.

Please be mindful: No strollers or high heels inside the gardens. All gardens are located at private homes. Not all are handicap accessible. The tour brochure will note accessible gardens. The Celebrity Luncheon at Stonington Harbor Yacht Club is fully handicap accessible!
