Explore the private sanctuaries of the city dwellers in Troy. The 16th Annual Hidden Garden Tour is a fundraiser that benefits Troy’s Prospect Park. This year, it will be held on Thursday, May 21st from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This is a self-guided tour that features twenty backyard gardens in the historic Sage College, Washington Park and other adjacent neighborhoods. It typically brings in over 200 individuals, but organizers believe this year could bring record numbers due to heightened interest in Troy.
