Free “What’s Out There Weekend Richmond” Landscape Tours

free richmond landscape tours

The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s What’s Out There Weekend Richmond offers the opportunity to attend “free, expert-led tours at more than two-dozen significant examples of designed landscapes in and around Richmond.” It will be held October 25 & 26; register online now for your choice of up to four tours at Agecroft, the Capitol, Hollywood Cemetery, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, Maymont, Monument Avenue, and many more!

    What’s Out There Weekend, scheduled for October 25 & 26, features free, expert-led tours at more than two-dozen significant examples of designed landscapes in and around Richmond. The Richmond-area’s rich legacy includes antebellum plantations and gardens, Colonial Revival properties, remarkable post-industrial parkland integrated with the James River, and significant Modernist plazas and public spaces.

    The What’s Out There Weekend program dovetails with the Web-based What’s Out There, the nation’s most comprehensive searchable database of historic designed landscapes. The database currently features more than 1,500 sites, 10,000 images and 750 designer profiles. And, What’s Out There is optimized for iPhones and similar handheld devices, and includes What’s Nearby – a GPS-enabled function that locates all landscapes in the database within a 25-mile radius of any given location. What’s Out There Weekend tours provide fascinating insights about city shaping, landscape architecture, and the design history of places that people may pass every day but don’t necessarily know about.

    Space is limited. Please restrict your registrations to four tours.

Thanks Jonah!
