Spring is in full swing at Reiman Gardens, with more than 50,000 tulips and bulbs set to hit full bloom in the last half of April.

Reiman Gardens Director of Horticulture Sarah Rummery anticipates that the warm weather during the weekend of April 12-14 will really kickstart the peak blooming season for the tulips, with peak viewing taking place somewhere around the dates of April 18-30, 2024. There are dozens of varieties of bulbs, including daffodils, hyacinths, and snowflakes. Take advantage of extended viewing hours from April 18-20 and April 25-27, when the Gardens are open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.

In addition to the tulips and bulbs, kids and adults alike can enjoy an outdoor scavenger hunt for more than 30 fairy doors and creature homes that are scattered across the 17 acres of Reiman Gardens. For a complete list of April events at Reiman Gardens, visit
