Secret Gardens of West Chester Tour – Purchase Tickets Here!

If you've strolled around the borough, you've no doubt been tempted to take a peek into some of the beautiful private gardens - the 'secret' gems of the borough.

In 2017, our walking tour of private gardens will be held around Barclay Friends’ own neighborhood - north of Marshall Street and East of High Street - in West Chester. The tour will include a stunning array of personal retreats tended for years.

We can help your garden look spectacular! Visit the plant sale in the upper parking lot at Barclay Friends on the day of the tour. Plants purchased have included Yarrow, Anemone, Coreopsis, Ornamental grasses and sedges, Coral Bells, Black Eyed Susans, and much more.

Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available.  For information, please contact Lee Ann Sullivan at or 610/918-3433.
