VALPARAISO | Taltree Arboretum & Gardens is shaking off old man winter starting with free admission on April 1.
This kicks off its new Free First Tuesday program, where guests receive free admission the first Tuesday of every month. April 1 also begins Taltree’s long season hours, and the arboretum will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
“With free first Tuesdays, Northwest Indiana residents and visitors will get a taste of the great escape Taltree has to offer,” said Alexis Faust, president and CEO of Taltree Arboretum & Gardens. “Taltree offers a healthy experience year-round with many events, festivals and exhibits to enhance our guest experience.”
Kicking off Taltree’s cultural experience this year is the Spring Chimes Exhibit featuring artistic wind chimes being showcased throughout the arboretum. The chimes will be theme-displayed by material or sound. Themes include Choir Bells, Artistic Winds, Westminster and Island Sounds. The Artistic Winds display in the Taltree Railway Garden was developed with the assistance of the Opportunity Enterprises arts program.
As part of the partnership, Opportunity Enterprises clients and employees will receive free admission throughout the duration of the exhibit. The exhibit will run April 1 through May 31 and is free with regular gate admission. Regular gate admission is $10 (13 to 54 years old), $8 (55 and older), $5 (5 to 12 years old) and free (4 years old and under).
