Here’s a terrific nature outing to consider this long weekend, submitted to us by one of our readers: “We just went to Elm Bank at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society in Wellesley, and it was a great adventure on a nice day! It is absolutely beautiful there, being outside and running around the children's gardens…they have great programs for kids year round.”
The Center is open daily from 8am to dusk and is free to members (non-members are encouraged to make a donation). Elm Bank includes Weezie’s Garden for Children, an array of smaller gardens, each with its own theme and means of engaging the senses with the garden’s elements. The grounds and gardens of Elm Bank are handicapped accessible.
