Inside the secret gardens of Cambridge

[bdc-gallery id=”930824″]

Once every two years, something very cool happens in Cambridge: People—normal people, like you and me—are given access to the city’s hidden gardens during the Friends of the Cambridge Public Library’s Secret Garden Tour. 

In order for a garden to be included—to be deemed “secret”—it can’t be visible from the street.

It also needs to have a unique or innovative feature, like a fountain or sculpture.

The biennial tour occurred Sunday, and dozens of gardens were made available to the public for a total of six hours. Homes that appeared ordinary from the outside revealed backyards that were anything but, and proceeds from the tour went to the Cambridge Public Library.
