Water Garden Special Interest Group: Tour the Gardens at Nemours

Due to bad weather predicted for this weekend, this event has been postponed until Spring 2024.

Enjoy a visit to the 200 acres of French inspired formal gardens, grounds, and woodlands at the Dupont Family’s Nemours Estate in Wilmington, Delaware on Saturday, October 14, 2023. Nemours is the largest French formal Garden landscape park in North America and the gardens are patterned after those at Versailles. The gardens feature a Boxwood Garden, Colonnade, Maze Garden, and reflecting and sunken ponds. For the auto enthusiasts, the Chauffeur’s Garage contains a collection of vintage automobiles. To extend your time on the estate grounds, please pack a picnic lunch, and lots of water, for you and your party to enjoy as food is not provided at Nemours.

A Nemours Gardener will lead 2 timed tours of the grounds and gardens, each for up to 20 HPS/MAG members. Each tour group requires a minimum of 15 participants.  If this minimum is not reached, the two tour groups may be combined to meet this minimum.  Registration includes the guided garden and grounds tour and admission to all self-guided features including the Mansion, Chauffeur’s Garage, and Gift Shop.
