White House Announces 2018 Spring Garden Tours


Washington: This spring, the White House will open its gardens and grounds to visitors. The grounds will be open on Saturday, April 14, from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM, and Sunday, April 15, from 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM. On these days, visitors can discover the beauty of the South Lawn of the White House.

The entry point for all guests, including those going to the NPS tent, will be located near the intersection of 15th Street and Constitution Avenue Northwest.
