CANCELED - Ridenour Lotus Pond and Garden Tour

  • Saturday, August 8, 2020, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM


The Open Days Garden Tours in our area have been canceled for the 2020 season. We look forward to working with the Garden Conservancy to bring you tours in 2021.

Hidden behind this suburban home on Warren Road in Ithaca is a treasure for viewing. Nancy Ridenour’s lotus pond is nestled between beautiful annual and perennial gardens and is filled with lotus blooms. Elegant flower stalks rise above the water’s surface and wave in the breeze. The effect is magical and mesmerizing. Additional features of the gardens include copper and cement sculptures carefully placed throughout the gardens. This is a garden to visit, to savor and experience, and to spend a relaxing few moments. Also, visit Lotus Studios on the property to view photographs of the lotus and other flowers.
