The Secret Gardens of Long Island


The Secret Garden is an all-time favorite novel written by Frances Hodgson Burnett in 1911. Many decades later, it came to life in the form of a movie, a musical and a ballet.

Secret Gardens of Long Island

A recent Newsday article (5/2/2014) entitled Garden Conservancy's Open Days: Rare Viewing Chance (Jessica Damiano) stirred up fond memories of discovering the book with former sixth grade classes.

The article explains a program, from 1995, whose purpose it is to display examples of horticultural excellence. Clicking on the link above will give you addresses, dates and times for Long Island's 2014 tour.

For a nominal $5.00 fee and free to children under 12, the public has access to the real life Secret Gardens of Long Island.

A lovely opportunity - not to be missed!

Good Evening Jill: The Secret Garden would no longer be a secret. The parents in Long Island should consider bringing their kids to this Garden for some nature trip and local history.

Chief Cook just finished rereading that classic, Jill!  She loved it, and we would both enjoy the Secret Gardens of Long Island!

I loved the movie and have watched it several times. Always wished I could have my own secret garden.
