Bradley, Eustis, and Wakefield Estates show off their fall colors
Saturday, November 2, 10am-3pm
(rain date Sunday, November 3)

Three local iconic garden estates will host the 3rd Annual Blue Hills Great Estates Fall Foliage Weekend, showcasing their autumn landscapes and designed gardens on Saturday, November 2, 10am-3pm (Rain date Sunday, Nov. 3). The Trustees’ Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate, Historic New England’s Eustis Estate, and the Wakefield Estate will open their grounds to visitors to celebrate the fall season with landscape and garden tours, nature crafts, seasonal beverages and treats, and activities for the whole family.

The Eustis Estate, at 1424 Canton Ave in Milton, will celebrate the final weekend of its special exhibition Changing Landscape: Sculpture at the Eustis Estate, with outdoor sculpture throughout the property and a drop-in sculpture making workshop with artist Madeleine Lord. Throughout the day there will be family crafts, a cider making demo and apple tasting, and lawn games. Enjoy the peace of the landscape with a walking meditation session at 12 noon.

At the Trustees' Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate, located at 2468 Washington Street in Canton, the main house will be opened to visitors to check out our new decor while taking in the setting of the soon-to-be-released movie- Little Women. At 11AM and 1PM visitors can take a tour of the beautiful trees on the property with horticulture assistant, Frances Kilmurray. Colorful foliage and the beauty of barks, berries and evergreen forms will take center stage. Enjoy a relaxing walk along the scenic trails, purchase plants to add to your own garden, experience the fun of yard games, and take home a free Trustees tote with the purchase of a Trustees membership.

Here at the Wakefield Estate and Arboretum, we will feature guided walks through its unique arboretum and grounds, including its new dwarf conifer collection that features over 50 species of conifers, at 11:00am, 12:00pm and 1:00pm; caramel apple-making for kids and cider for adults, and nature-based crafts and activities for the whole family.
