MEETING PLACE: We will meet in Grand Central Terminal at the entrance to the track that is posted for the 10:25 train to the Botanical Gardens. Before meeting, buy your round trip ticket from Metro North. Fare is $18.50, or $9 for seniors. If you prefer to make your own way to the Gardens, plan to meet the group at the Mosholu gate across from the Metro North station at 10:55AM. Please indicate your travel preference when you register.
Our summer guided tour combines breathtaking works of glass sculpture by the renowned artist Dale Chihuly with the beauty of a world famous botanical garden. Its center is the landmarked Enid Haupt Conservatory and its lush tropical rain forests, cactus-filled deserts, aquatic and carnivorous plants, and much more.
We’ll end the tour at the Pine Tree Café for a dutch treat lunch. You may then wish to take a tram tour and explore more of the Gardens’ 250 acres on your own.
COST: $40 for WCC members, $50 for guests, plus train fare.
