Springfields Festival Gardens
Springfields Festival Gardens have now re-opened to the public and our gardeners are busy with catching up on weeding, grass cutting and general maintenance. Visitors will still be required to follow Government rules on social distancing (2 metres as far as possible) and social gatherings. Leaflets and notices will be available to give other information about staying safe and stopping the spread of Coronavirus COVIS-19. In addition there is a special “Route 2020” garden walk you can follow to see some of the most popular features in the gardens. We look forward to welcoming you back to enjoy the rest of the summer in the Festival Gardens.

The Springfields Festival Gardens are a beautifully landscaped area, featuring Chelsea-style celebrity showcase gardens, including designs by Charlie Dimmock, Chris Beardshaw, Kim Wilde and Steven Woodhams, and a spectacular Japanese Garden by Sansui Design.
The Gardens were completely redeveloped in 2004, in conjunction with Springfields Horticultural Society, a charity dedicated to the improvement and growth of horticulture and floral design in the Spalding region.
They have welcomed some new additions, as innovative designer, Stephen Newby unveiled a collection of his spectacular stainless steel sculptures throughout the landscaped gardens. The ‘blown’ steel sculptures are largely based around a water theme, featuring a water pyramid fountain, pillow planters and a specially commissioned 15’ ‘Kaleidoscope Wheel’, situated in the canal.
During Spring the Gardens feature a magnificent display of daffodils, tulips and other bulbs celebrating the gardens close links to the bulb industry.
Open all year round with FREE admission (except during fund-raising events), Springfields Festival Gardens were first opened in 1966 as the shop window for the flower bulb industry, introducing members of the public, amateur gardeners and enthusiasts to a wide range of horticultural experiences.
PLEASE NOTE only assistance dogs are allowed in the gardens.
