Join us for a spring hike through West Fairmount Park and see the flowers and cherry trees blooming!  This will be a relatively easy hike from the Horticulture Center to the top of Belmont Plateau and back.  We may include a loop around the Please Touch Museum.   Then finish off by self-guided wanderings through the Horticulture Gardens' greenhouses and grounds.   

What to bring:  Clothes, hat, and sunscreen appropriate for the day.  Water bottle, snack, and good sneakers or hiking shoes.  Camera and binoculars if you are into picture taking or birding.  Dogs are allowed, but you must leash them and clean up after them.

Hike starts promptly at 10:15 AM.

A bonus for anyone interested is to take in a tour afterwards of the nearby Shofuso House (Japanese House and Garden), next to the Horticulture Center.  $12 entry fee for adults.  Please refer to the Shofuso House’s visitor information
