Tower Hill Botanic Garden: A Magical Experience For Families | West Boston Moms

A trip to Tower Hill Botanic Garden located in Boylston, MA is a family must do this summer! Walking through the expansive gardens and trails are simply magical. There’s so many wonderful sights to take in while you’re visiting.

We recently visited during one of the Free After Three Thursday events, where admission to Tower Hill is free through the end of August, on Thursday’s after 3pm. We started our warm sunny evening by purchasing dinner at their in-house cafe Farmer and the Fork, which provided healthy options and included a good selection of craft beers – a win for my husband! We enjoyed dinner on the porch overlooking the beautiful mountain scenery in the distance.


After dinner we headed over to the courtyard where lawn game and activity happenings were in abundance, along with a festive beer garden for the 21+ crowd. My daughter enjoyed playing several rounds of cornhole and other fun games.

We finished the night up by taking a leisurely walk around the trails, exploring the many varieties of flowers, trees, and beautiful sculptures. The grand finale was the spectacular sunset viewed from the Botanic Garden porch!
