Smell the Roses at the Kelleher Rose Garden *new date* (2:00)
Thursday, June 17, 2021, 2:00 PM until 3:30 PM
Kelleher Rose Garden
A hidden gem tucked beyond Boston’s downtown parks, the James P. Kelleher Rose Garden dates back to 1931 and features over 1,500 roses behind its tall green yew hedge in the Back Bay Fens. On this leisurely hour-long walk, you’ll take in the sights and scents and meander the paths of the oldest continually operating Victory Garden in America. Take the “E” branch of the Green Line to the Northeastern T stop on Huntington Avenue. Meet BHV member Joan Doucette outside Cafe Tatte (there's a bathroom inside), 369 Huntington Avenue, near the corner of Forsythe Avenue, for a 5 minute walk to the Shattuck Visitor Center, 125 Fenway, the starting point for the stroll. Free.
