BOOTHBAY (WGME) — The Coastal Botanical Gardens in Boothbay will be opening back up this weekend.
The gardens span more than 300 acres along the midcoast and were created to inspire meaningful connections between people, plants and nature.
Organizers said they have a lot of new features this year, including sculptures that have a message on sustainability.
Because of capacity restrictions, the gardens will still have timed ticketing, limiting the number of people who can get in at once so visitors should buy their tickets online.
“We’re so thrilled to be opening to the public after a long cold winter. It’s really exciting to bring people back to the gardens, where they can enjoy the beauty and respite of nature and get outside safely,” said CEO Gretchen Ostherr.
The gardens open Saturday, May 1.
