Get ready for a spring time treat! Eight private gardens in the beautiful Forest Lake neighborhood, whose origins date back to 1935, will be open during Columbia Green’s annual Festival of Gardens tour. Originally known as Dent’s Pond, Forest Lake, and the several lakes that feed it, are surrounded by homes with unique gardens. From sculpture gardens, a bit of Southern France, vegetable gardens, chickens and ducks, and giant live oaks and magnolias, there is something special in every garden.

The tour will be held Friday, May 3rd and Saturday, May 4th with gardens open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day. Advanced tickets are $25.00 for Columbia Green members and $35.00 for non-members. Day of the tour tickets are an additional $5.00.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. at Forest Lake Gardens, 5210 N. Trenholm Road, Columbia 29206. Proceeds from the tour fund our mission of promoting the beautification of the Columbia area.
