The 30-acre Hudson Gardens and Event Center shows off its blooms in a number of gardens, including an herb garden, a chocolate garden, aquatic plants, an iris display and a pumpkin patch. A visit to the gardens, which are open all year, is free.
The gardens are home to a 100-year-old beehive area, and classes in beekeeping are taught by volunteer mentors. Birders can borrow a guide to area birds and a pair of binoculars. Classes and events include a community drum circle, bats and other creatures of the dark, a photographic cave exploration and an exploration of wetlands on the property. A garden railroad also operates several days a week.
Outdoor music and dance concerts take place weekly each summer featuring well-known groups and performers.
