Sycamore Hill Gardens is open by reservation only.

Self-Guided Tours: We are offering a very limited number of Self-Guided tours. To see available time slots and to register, browse our events below. Each $45 ticket is for ONE PARKING SPACE and is good for up to eight people per vehicle.

Charitable Events: We also open the garden to give back to the Central New York Community by providing a venue for Baltimore Woods Nature Center, the CNY Land Trust, and several other local not-for-profits to host their own annual fundraisers at Sycamore Hill Gardens. 100% of admission fees go directly to these groups, we charge them no fees for their use of the gardens. So, when you visit Sycamore Hill Gardens for an event, you will be directly helping these organizations by sharing the enjoyment of time spent outdoors with friends and family. For a complete list of our upcoming Charity Events, please see our event list below.

Garden Groups: If you wish to inquire about booking a tour for your garden group, please purchase all six morning or evening slots of the day you would like to visit and email with the subject line GROUP. Please, no wedding or catering requests. We do not have the facilities or staff for these types of events at this point in time.

Visitor Rules

  • Tickets are per parking space. Each ticket is good for one passenger vehicle that holds up to eight people (including the driver). Visit alone, with friends, or with family. Anyone you want to bring in one vehicle, so long as there are not more than eight of you, rain or shine.
  • No pets are allowed. Please note, however, that the property is patrolled by four working terriers.
  • Quiet is not guaranteed as garden work is ongoing. Please be considerate of our one full-time employee who maintains the entire grounds.
  • Parking is behind the barn. The house, a private residence, is not open to the public. The upper part of the barn is open, accessible by the upper driveway.
  • Picnics are encouraged, as is plenty of hydration and sunscreen.
  • No grilling.
  • A portable toilet (porta potty) is on premises near the parking.
  • Please do not throw anything into the ponds other than the provided koi food. Eating bread, crackers, or any other items you carry with you will cause the koi fish to bloat and possibly die, and many of them have been alive for decades. If no koi food is available, that means they have been fed their allotment for the day. Koi food can be found in a white bucket at the pond. Please reseal after use. Please use sparingly as a consideration to other guests who want to see the koi.
  • Please take back out with you anything you bring into the garden.
  • Tickets are rain or shine and are not refundable. We cannot control the weather.
  • No visitors are permitted before sunrise or after sunset.
  • No tree or tower climbing, please!

Please Note: By purchasing tickets, you agree to abide by the above rules. Any violation of the above rules will result in expulsion without a refund and being banned from future visits.

At our request, all participating nonprofit organizations offer admission pricing that is family-friendly. At all charitable events, picnicking is encouraged, children of all ages are welcome, parking is free, and 100% of your admission goes directly to the group hosting each event. This is our way of giving back to the Central New York community with the kind help of you, your family, your friends, and your participation. We’re sorry, but no pets allowed!
