Edison and Ford Winter Estates will be opening the riverside botanical gardens on Friday, May 29. Come see what’s blooming and walk through more than 20 acres of gardens in a park-like setting with large shade trees and a scenic river view. You will also be able to stroll outside under the porches of the historic homes and view into the interior lifestyle of Edison and Ford.
The new app allows you to take the self-guided tour with narration and meander at your own pace. To ensure social distancing, guided tours are not being offered at this time. The riverside will be open Friday through Monday each week, through June.
