Spring Garden Tours – Bok Tower Gardens (Lake Wales)

Members / Non-Members $60.00

Guest Speaker: Marion de Vogel

While we travel to Bok Tower, Marion de Vogel, great granddaughter of Arthur G. McKee, will weave a short narrative between the visionary founders of two of Florida’s most treasured garden destinations.

A one-hour walking tour starts in front of the Visitor’s Center, goes through the Gardens and ends up at the Tower.  The tour is led by volunteers, who are Master Gardeners. We will then tour Pinewood Estate guided by a docent. The Mansion is a 20 room (12,500 Sq. Ft) house built in 1932. It was the winter home for Charles A. Buck, Vice President of Bethlehem Steel.

Participants will choose from three lunch options which will also include a beverage of coffee, iced tea or soda. (alcoholic beverages not included)

Please arrive at McKee by 8:00 am.

Parking available in the North Parking Lot.

The bus will pull away from McKee at 8:15 am and return to McKee around 3:00 pm.
