Garden Party Celebrating the Restoration of the Robbins Memorial Garden
Robbins Memorial Garden (between Robbins Library and Arlington Town Hall)
Tickets: $25 in advance, $30 at the event

Join us to celebrate the restoration of the Winfield Robbins Memorial Garden in Arlington Center! This beautiful, historic landscape was first designed in 1911 by architect R. Clipston Sturgis in collaboration with Cyrus Dallin, and re-designed in 1939 by the Olmsted Brothers firm. The restoration of the reflecting pool and plantings was made possible by a 2017 Community Preservation Act grant to the Friends of the Robbins Town Gardens and the Arlington Historical Commission. Dallin’s Menotomy Hunter statue was restored by the Town of Arlington last spring.

Garden Party guests will enjoy savory hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine cash bar, music and theater. Tickets available at the Dallin Museum, Town Hall Select Board office, Book Rack Arlington, or online here.

This celebration is co-sponsored by the Town of Arlington, Friends of the Robbins Town Gardens, Arlington Historical Commission, Cyrus Dallin Art Museum, and the Arlington Garden Club.
