Mounts Botanical Garden of Palm Beach County

Launches New Pup-Friendly Monthly Event

DOGS’ DAY IN THE GARDEN

Starting Sunday, December 13, 9 am to 3 pm

(West Palm Beach, FL – November 12, 2020) Calling all pooches – and their human minders, too! Mounts Botanical Garden is turning its annual Dogs’ Day in the Garden into a monthly event, starting on Sunday, December 13, from 9 am to 3 pm. Going forward, this popular event for people and their canine fur-babies will be held on the second Sunday of each month through May 9, 2021.

 

This new monthly event will be held throughout the Garden, and regular admission applies: $10 (general); $5 (children 5-12), and free for members.

 

“This is the perfect opportunity for an entire family, dogs included, to visit the Garden, take a walk on the winding paths, meet other pooch pals and heel for photo opportunities,” says Rochelle Wolberg, Curator-Director at Mounts. “We invite everyone to come out and be part of this tail-wagging good time.”

 

Visitors should bring their own water and treats for the puppies. For more information, please visit www.mounts.org or call 561.233.1757.

 

Still available for viewing at Mounts Botanical Garden is the family-friendly and ecology-conscious exhibition Cutting Corners: A Stickwork Exhibition, a massive, willow sculpture located in the Great Lawn area.
