Old Westbury Gardens Opens on April 1st

By Thomas Nothel


Old Westbury Gardens has announced the opening of its 65th season on Monday, April 1st.


Since its inception 65 years ago, Old Westbury Gardens (OWG) has charmed visitors with its rich history, stunning architecture, and enchanting gardens.


“As I begin my first full season leading Old Westbury Gardens, I am filled with anticipation for our opening,” stated Maura Brush, the President of OWG. “The winter months, during which we were closed, afforded us the opportunity to complete many restoration projects both inside Westbury House and in the gardens.”


Throughout April, visitors can immerse themselves in a variety of fun-filled events and activities, including: the season’s first Storybook Stroll on April 6th; the 4-week Early Spring Tiny Gardeners program for kids ages 2-3 (beginning April 8th); and “Poetica Musica: A Thousand Years of French Music” concert on April 13th.


The popular “Dog Days” will be held the weekend April 20th and 21st.


“I am eager for our visitors to enjoy all that Old Westbury Gardens has to offer during our landmark anniversary year,” stated Brush.


From guided tours of the historic home to a child/adult tea, a book signing and talk, and spring recess activities for kids, there is something for everyone to enjoy in April and throughout the entire season.


OWG will be open from 10am to 6pm starting Monday, April 1st. Last entry for non-members is 4pm; last entry for members is 5pm. Last entry into Westbury House is 5:15pm.


Ticket prices are as follows: Admission, $15; Ages 62 and older, $13; Full-time students with valid ID, $13; Children, ages 7 to 17, $8; Children, ages 6 and under, Free. Old Westbury Gardens is open daily except Tuesdays.
