“Absolutely a wonderful place to visit while in Galena!”
Review of Linmar Gardens

Linmar Gardens
Ranked #25 of 49 things to do in Galena
Attraction details
Reviewed July 20, 2013

I've been to Linmar Gardens both on a tour and as part of a wedding. I could list a hundred things that are wonderful about this place but I think each person will have their own list of nice things about the gardens after they visit. Their is something for everything there.

Please be aware that the gardens are private and are available by guided tour only. I think the tours are at 11 am and 2 pm.

As for the lone negative review I would have to think he was blind...or holding a grudge.

While on a painting excursion to Galena, we took a tour of Linmar Gardens. What a visual feast with surprises at every turn along the garden path. We even got permission to return and spend a morning painting there. Well worth visiting.

The gardens are at the end of the street past the old Galena High property. Our tour guide was one of the very involved persons who keep the gardes going, The guide was very engaging and humorous, and really made the walking tour fun. It's one of those places that you want to always be there when you come back, but it is also one that could be gone with no warning. Don't wait to take the tour and enjoy!

Spent a lovely hour seeing what these gentlemen have transformed into a showplace. It is a hidden treasure for gardeners to enjoy.
