Allerton Park and Retreat Center
Celebrate spring and support Allerton at this year’s fundraiser – Picnic with the Peonies presented by Cass Concepts – on May 22 and 23!
Head to Allerton to picnic and raise funds to install an accessible path in the visitor-favorite Peony Garden! How you participate is up to you… They recommend starting with a stroll through the picturesque peonies (masks required), then head out to find your perfect picnic spot! Bring your own picnic — or stop by the Greenhouse Café (masks required) to pick up a specially curated picnic box and drinks (menu here).
A bar (cash/credit accepted) will be available so you can sip as you savor the season at Allerton! (No outside alcohol, please.)
All donations will go towards creating an accessible path in the Peony Garden. Read more about the project and make your gift here!
