It's summertime! Enjoy the long, lazy days of summer at Castle Hill's Picnic Concerts. Each week offers an exciting family-friendly and danceable band. Walk the grounds, visit the gardens, or relax on the lawn. Stop by the visitor information tent to check out our weekly drawing and membership promotion, borrow a frisbee or ball, or try our family Eye Spy based on Castle Hill's landscape features. New for 2018--visit the Alicja Kwade Art and the Landscape installation located on the site of the former historic maze.
