At 68 acres, the grounds of the Boscobel estate in Garrison have plenty of space for social distancing. The site is now offering a limited number of outdoor admission tickets. Advance reservations, face masks, and social distancing are required for all visitors, who can enjoy the historic site’s stunning views and lush, blooming gardens as well as walk the beautiful Woodland Trail. Member reservations for grounds tickets are free. Members may also make reservations for private, one-household-at-a-time grounds visits outside of our public hours; and thanks to member support, so can local healthcare workers. Contact Director of Visitor Engagement Ed Glisson at [email protected] to arrange for private access.
