Barclay Friends 14th Annual Secret Gardens Tour and Plant Sale

The 14th Annual Secret Gardens Tour will showcase private gardens in the northwest neighborhood of West Chester Borough. This popular community event features local musicians and artists at many of the gardens and is attended by more than 300 supporters and gardening enthusiasts each year. Gardens range from tiny courtyards to an elegant estate property. The tour will be held rain or shine from 10:00 am-3:00 pm. In addition to the gardens, we are including the newly established Barclay Park (site of the original Barclay Friends Home) with its interesting selection of mature trees, the courtyard of the West Chester Public Library designed by noted architect T. Roney Williamson, and the historic West Chester Golf and Country Club's garden. The gardens are clustered in two areas, with ample on street parking. Guests may choose to either walk all or part of the tour, or drive from one area to another. There will be a food truck at Barclay Park for light lunch and a food truck located at Barclay Friends (700 North Franklin Street) during the duration of the tour. In addition, there will be a plant sale at Barclay Friends from 10:00 am-3:00 pm. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the tour. Unfortunately, refunds cannot be issued for tickets. All proceeds support Barclay Friend’s Horticultural Therapy Program.
