Open Garden Squares takes place all across town June 13 and 14, 2015.

This is a chance to take a peek behind the closed gates of more than 200 city gardens. Hidden grassy gems, from the historic and traditional to the new and experimental, are opened up to the public over this weekend; including private gardens, roof gardens, community allotments, urban wildlife and ecology centers, plus gardens belonging to historic buildings, institutions, restaurants, schools and shops.

Many of the gardens provide stalls, music, entertainment, family and art activities as well as food and drink. Tickets are available online or at the venues.
