Spectacular summer

June 1 – September 30

From colourful florals in the day to subtle plays of light and shadow in the evening, summer offers breathtaking drama as day fades into night.



Friday and Saturday nights through July and August, you can take in a live performance from our outdoor stage on the Concert Lawn. Nestled amidst lush trees, the stage plays host to a variety of performers. Summer concerts will begin at 8:00 PM and are included with your admission ticket.
