Parking and Other Details on Rooms & Blooms

by Mystic Garden Club ~ June 13, 2009

The easiest way to get to downtown Mystic is to take Exit 89 off I 95 (Allyn Street), and go south towards Mystic (I don’t know which direction you’re coming from, so it’s either a left or a right!).  You’ll go through a blinking red light to a stop light, which is Rte. 1.  Take a left onto Rte. 1 towards Mystic.  There is parking at the Union Baptist Church which will be the second left, or further down the hill into Mystic at St. Marks Church on Pearl Street (the 4th left after you get onto Rte. 1).  We’ll have signs pointing the way.  You may also park along the road, but be sure to follow parking signs.  Finally, there is a field we’ll be using on River Road, north of the tour route, and we’ll have jitney’s driving folks back and forth to the tour area.

Those who have prepurchased tickets,  may start at any property and pick up your tour booklet.  They will be clearly marked with a large decorated planter on the road.  The tour is along Gravel Street, Pearl Street, Clift Street, Grove Street and Starr Street.  It’s a walking tour, and we expect it to take around 3 hours if you go to every property.

We are looking forward to a beautiful day.  All of this rain is great for the gardens!
