Bring the family on Dogs and Dogwoods Day June 10

Friday, 02 June 2017 06:03

Join us for a day of fun for families and four-legged friends featuring "dog" related activities. Come out with the whole family, and if that doesn't include a pooch, enjoy the dogs out with their own families. Lunch on a yummy "dog" at our Hot Dog stand before entering your pooch in our light-hearted dog show at 1:00 for kids and adults where every dog gets a ribbon. The whole family can enjoy a stroll in the garden and grounds, check out the pond and stream, or a "roll" in the grass at the Rolling Lawn. All dogs must be kept on leash and be under their owner's control. Hours 10 am - 4 pm daily throughout Dogwood Days. Admission: $5 suggested donation.
During your visit, make sure to check out our plant sale. Take home one of the Wakefield Estate's special plants to start your own collection. For more information, call 617-333-0924.
