Theatre By The Seas offers free tours

Dana Millar of Dana Designs in West Kingston, the steward of the gardens at the historic Theatre By The Sea, will conduct garden tours on select Saturday mornings during the summer.

Originally designed in 1988 by landscape designer Louis Raymond, the abundant gardens at Theatre By The Sea have been meticulously maintained by Dana Designs for the past four years.

Cooled by breezes from Block Island Sound, the lush seaside gardens embrace the historic theatre complex from the front porch and gazebo area, down the unique 240-foot-long arbor walk, to the rolling lawns surrounding the restaurant. Over 300 varieties of perennials, grasses, shrubs and climbing plants offer a magical, ever-changing environment for flower lovers of all ages.

Complimentary garden tours, which will last approximately 40 minutes, will be conducted rain or shine beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 9. They will also take place on June 30, July 28 and Aug. 25.

Those wishing to attend multiple tours are encouraged. Participants should meet in the newly redesigned gazebo area adjacent to the theatre on the grounds at Theatre By The Sea located on Cards Pond Road in Matunuck. For more information or to reserve a spot, call 782-3800.
